Cassandra: More Option Key Magic in Apple's Maps Application on the Mac
By Graham K. Rogers
I have discovered another of these that works with the Maps application. Both in the map view and satellite view, there is a 3D button at the bottom right of the screen. When this is pressed, the map tilts away slightly to give a faux 3D effect. This works better in some countries than others.
In the maps of Bangkok and Paris, for example, in either Satellite or Map view the image could be tilted far further so that the horizon was visible.
