Nokia Introducing the New Ovi Maps 3D
Nokia has finally announced its new Ovi Maps in 3D, and get a realistic picture of the world in 3D. This is a new 3D maps give you the feel of this place and you can see what it really looks like. C3 Technologies with Nokia to bring you the best experience. Nokia has 20 cities, 3D modeling and much more will be added in the future.
“C3 uses modern camera equipment to capture as many as one image per second of the same object from up to 100 different angles. The images are then used to automatically reproduce the shape of the objects with very high accuracy. After that, an image processing software automatically drapes each shape with the texture chosen from the pictures of each object. The same process is being applied for all objects – buildings, houses, trees, and hills – the result is a seamless canvas of 3D-data where the resolution (8 to 12 centimeters per pixel) and quality is consistent over the entire model. This is the secret to C3 maps’ realistic look compared to competitors’ hand-made and cartoonish appearance.”
