Google LatLong: Explore new terrain

screengrab from Google Maps
Google Maps has a new terrain button. After pressing the terrain button Google Maps will show physical features such as mountains, valleys, and vegetation. It contains labels for even very small mountains and trails which are enhanced with subtle shading.

You can see the new terrain feature in action at the Grand Canyon.
