  • Patent number: 9459115
    Abstract: The subject technology provides a mapping view that enables a user to view, from their current location, a portion of a route to a destination including a graphical element corresponding to the current location and a second graphical element in the form of an arrow-shaped object to indicate a direction of a turn to be made on the route. As progress on route is made, when the current location of the user is within a distance threshold of the location of the turn to be made, the subject technology may animate the second graphical element to move in the direction of the turn along the route to another location where a subsequent turn is to be made. The second graphical element may remain stationary at this other location to indicate a direction of the subsequent turn until the user's current location reaches the distance threshold for this subsequent turn.

  • Patent number: 9430858
    Abstract: Theme-differentiated maps are generated from conventional two and three-dimensional mapping data. Dynamic cartography models are applied to the data to deliver maps with stylized topographies. In response to a search request from a client device for a map, points-of-interest within a geographic area resulting from the search are identified. Renderable representations of the points-of-interest are altered to differentiate the search results from other features in the geographic area. The resulting renderable representations are then transmitted to the client device for rendering.
