NAVTEQ Goes 3-D with Maps

NAVTEQ, the leading provider of mapping data for GPS devices and services such as Google Maps and Yahoo Maps, announced Thursday a new Visual Content suite that adds three-dimensional models of cities and major landmarks.

While services like Windows Live Local currently offer such capabilities in a handful of cities, NAVTEQ's content is more widely utilized around the globe and could easily bring the feature to online maps that use its database. The company says the 3-D city models and landmarks are available for major cities in Europe, North America and Asia.
