Launching this summer, the Earthmine map system will offer much more precision than Google’s video street maps.
Rafe Needleman stumbled onto the Earthmine camera truck and posted specs at Webware plus a few of Earthmine’s upcoming features:
• survey-quality 3D data
• laser range-finding
• object coordinates
• perspective-corrected hi-res pics
For sale to government and corporations, Earthmine will provide panorama picture maps with accurate locations of light poles, trash cans, storefronts, trees, faces and license plates.
