Google maps 45° in 26 new cities

I occasionally found out that, zooming with Google maps in Zurich, the view suddenly switches from a bird eye’s view to a 45° view. So it looks like “Google map’s 45 degree” option has been enabled just a few days ago for another 26 cities.
This new feature (or bug?) might raise new privacy related questions…

Zoom factor 17 (bird eye’s view):

Zoom factor 18 (three quarter’s view):

Berne: 31st of May 2012
Zurich: 25th of May 2012
