    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.
