Google Maps in 3D?

  • Print Friendly

Silicon Valley Watcher announced a scoop yesterday, claiming that they have the first word on Google’s plans to map the word in 3D, trumping Amazon/A9’s photo vans. Through the clever use of lasers and digital photography, Google plans to drive trucks though cities, mapping their way along.

Andy Beal thought it was a joke, speculating that it would be nearly impossible to keep up with development in major cities, let alone the entire nation.

I don’t see why it can’t be true. It’s no more exotic than A9’s plan to photograph cities even if it does use lasers. And what a boon to local search would that be? It would really underline the importance of getting your address on your homepage so that you can be found on a maps search.
