Apple added 3D flyover support in its Maps application for Mac and iOS to three new cities this weekend: Perth, Australia; Saint-Tropez, France; and Cordoba, Spain. This addition comes just a few months after Apple added flyover support for Cape Town and others as the company continues to expand its coverage to include as many major cities as possible.

Not everyone’s excited about Apple’s 3D mapping technology, though. The Norwegian government has blocked Apple from collecting flyover data from Oslo, the nation’s capital.

Apple is working on polishing the Maps application before the release of iOS 8 later this year. In addition to improved mapping data, the app will reportedly be updated to include public transit directions, which were removed from the iOS app when Apple decided to build its own in-house system instead of relying on Google Maps.
