    If we press down on the screen again with two fingers and swipe down, we can see that it is back to the bird's eye view.
    We can see this more if we zoom in. We can see it's more distinct in this way and we can see the buildings.

    We will press down on the screen with two fingers and swipe up again.
    Now we can see how tilted the screen is. We've tilted the map, and now we can see the buildings in 3-D. We can see them more on a side perspective. This can be very useful if we're looking to see what kind of buildings there are. If we want to see if they're high rise or what kind of area it is. It's very useful to be able to see this in 3-D.
