This just in from 9to5Google.com:

Google will hold a morning event on June 6 to give the press a “behind-the-scenes look at Google Maps and share our vision.” Google will demo some of its “newest technology and provide a sneak peek at upcoming features that will help people get where they want to go – both physically and virtually.”

At this invitation-only press gathering, Brian McClendon, VP of Google Maps and Google Earth, will give you a behind-the-scenes look at Google Maps and share our vision. We’ll also demo some of the newest technology and provide a sneak peek at upcoming features that will help people get where they want to go – both physically and virtually. We hope to see you there.

Apple, of course, is holding its WWDC event starting June 11, where it will reveal its own mapping solution instead of using Google Maps.

This should be interesting.
