Google maps has unveiled 3D views of 13 French landmarks, with its ‘Immersive View’ function set to be available across the whole of Paris in the coming months.

With the exception of the Fondation Maeght which is in Saint-Paul-de-Vence (Alpes-Maritimes) all of the landmarks are in the Paris region. They include the Eiffel Tower and the Château de Versailles.

The function is available in the Google Maps app and has already been launched in other cities including London, Los Angeles and New York.

The technology uses computer vision and AI to fuse together Street View and aerial images to create an interactive, 3D rendering of a given city. A time slider allows you to see what the area is like at different times of day.
