This is insane, taking Google maps to a whole new level, we felt that we had to share!

fastcompany:

Derived from technology that was originally intended to guide missiles, a company called C3 Technologies has just licensed their powerful new mapping technology to Nokia.

C3’s peacetime use renders 3-D color models of entire cities—its buildings, statues, even its trees—to a resolution of 15 centimeters.

This video shows how playing with C3’s maps—twirling, panning, zooming—on a tablet could easily make you feel just a little bit like, well, God.

More on why some have called this new tech “Google Maps on steroids.”
