HERE WeGoMaps and navigator.
Very well advanced maps from Nokia, which were originally just maps for mobile navigators.
Now they become full-fledged maps that are not inferior to Google. It's more pleasant to work with them than with others, very soft and quality scrolling, loading. The maps are made primarily for ease of use on mobile devices. At the moment my city is shown in detail, besides the photo from space is much more decent than Yandex, because it was made in the summer, not dirty autumn.
I tried different navigators, Ruku application on Android was the best. You can download and use offline. There are panoramas, also Europe and the USA.

Google MapsLeading online maps.
Google was the first to create this miracle, which allows you to see the whole world and the map in terms of and photos of decent quality with detailing to the house. There are maps that better and more accurately show certain cities or countries, OpenStreetMaps is better in small settlements in Western countries, Yandex.Maps for Russia, Here WEGO - Scandinavia. But Google is much better in everything: maps in terms of, in photos, 3D, panoramas ... Google maps are integrated with other services. And they are constantly developing, raising the bar higher.
PanoramasGoogle linked the panoramas to Google maps, which made them incredibly convenient. I must say that even in Russia Google has covered the incredible territory with panoramas. As with almost all Google services, maps are Russified. The names of countries and cities in Russian and below the original language. Streets in Russian in the CIS and English in other countries.
3DIn fact, this Google Earth program is built into Google Maps.
In order to take advantage of this effect, you need to go into the photo mode and the 3D button below the compass will appear. The terrain is very well implemented: mountains, valleys ...
As for the cities they remained flat, although the whole picture is tilted. The real effect of 3D up to the trees is only in the large cities of the Western world (Europe, Australia, Canada) and much of the US. To hold the circle, hold down the Ctrl or Shift and use the mouse.
OpenStreetMapOpenStreetMap is a free project for the joint development of public maps and diagrams of cities, streets, roads with the help of manual or automatic data entry, as well as obtaining data from portable GPS-receivers.
The project site runs on the MediaWiki engine, similar to Wikipedia. Maps are licensed under the free license CC-BY-SA 2.0 (for CC-BY-SA 3.0 license, Which is used in particular for Wikipedia's text content, the project has not been transferred, but version 2.0 is compatible with it, and OpenStreetMap has nothing to do with the Wikimedia Foundation. I found the plans of many cities that are not in Google maps, or Yandex.Maps.
The 3D globerenderer works directly in the browser using WebGL.
