Many swedish readers are already familiar with 3d maps from C3 technologies since hitta.se use their maps. As we know google and other companies show their maps as a flat satellite image. But here you can rotate the world in 3d with every single building in perfect details. I’m sure that google is jealous of C3 becouse of these maps are incredible.
Maps are based on high-resolution photography captured with carefully calibrated cameras. For every picture, the positions and angles of the cameras are calculated with extremely high precision, using an advanced navigation system. This is what enables C3 to give each pixel its geographical position with very high accuracy.
If you wanna rotate around yourself here are some online demos from C3
