With the introduction on Google Maps 6.0, Google began offering a 3D view feature for most Android-powered devices. So instead of just seeing the traditional top-down, north-oriented map view, you can now get a full-blown 3D rendering of your map. This feature is very handy if you have a difficult time innately sensing the cardinal directions. You can still zoom in and out, but can now also rotate your map. So if you see an oddly shaped building nearby you and can find that same building on your map and rotate it to orient it however you like. Below is a link to directions and examples, provided by Google.
