NAVTEQ capture of 3D maps in Helsinki
The Nokia-endorsed video below demonstrates what I referred to on a previous post, the NAVTEQ capturing of street maps (in Helsinki) by using specialized hardware. It's probably a bit lengthier than I would have liked but I have to say that this (driving around while capturing 3D maps!) is one great job!
The video explains the process quite well including how the camera capturing hardware operates (explained in a previous post here). Well worth watching, I am eagerly awaiting NAVTEQs 3D urban models to be made available as it looks like they will be of very high quality.
