Apple bought 3D Map Company C3 Technologies

Apple soon to delivery 3D maps that look like Reality.

Apple is continuing to build their in-house mapping solution. 9to5Mac reports today that Apple was the company that acquired C3 Technologies in Sweden in August and shut it down. C3 Technologies developed a solution to provide photo-realistic 3D maps. The images (see above) of C3 Technology 3D maps are stunning. Their technology is based on an automated  generation of 3D models based on camera photos. C3′s solution comes from declassified missile targeting methods. 

So expect 3D maps in our next generation iPhone that are as realistic as if you would be there.
