Next generation 3D aerial imaging

C3 Technologies 3d Aerial Mapping view of London

Google Earth has some competition - beautifully modelled and textured 3d navigable views of major cities at 10cm resolution. The video embedded above shows the technology working well on tablets so mobile applications are key - Google Streetview is going to look old pretty fast once this stuff goes mainstream.

The company behind it, C3 technologies, has allegedly been bought by Apple, so presumably Google's mapping tech is getting the heave ho from iOS...
