    We now need to find Maps application.
    It's located here at the top of the screen. We can see that there is an icon of a map, and there is a red pin in the map, and it says "Maps" underneath. Press down on that icon, and it will open up the Maps application for us. What we want to do in this video is show how to use satellite images with the maps. That creates a different view and perspective. It allows us to see a number of different things on the map.

    We can see that this is a real image.
    It's very useful because we actually get more of a sense of location. For example, if we were looking for somewhere to go camping or to a picnic, we might want to look for trees or a natural environment. This helps us to actually see what is here. For example, we can see the lake, and we can see the trees or other things, and it gives a lot more detail. We can see all of the detail of the locations such as the steps, there's a stadium here, and it's very interesting to see.
