Programmatically display the globe view on iOS 7?

The latest iOS Maps app allows you to zoom out to see a 3D view of the earth (complete with lighting relevant to the position of the sun) if you are in satellite or hybrid modes.

Does anyone know if we can achieve this programatically in our own apps without resorting to some 3rd party solution?

Answers


No, MapKit doesn't do this yet. The globe view just debuted in iOS 7, so it might come in the future. You need to go third party.
