Rapid 3D mapping

9to5Mac reports that Apple is now the owner of C3 Technologies, a company that creates incredibly high-quality and detailed 3D maps with virtually no input from humans. The 3D mapping is camera based and the technology picks up buildings, homes, and even smaller objects like trees. C3′s solution comes from declassified missile targeting methods. SAAB, partially a former owner of C3 Technologies has a video that explains how the technology actually works.
