Nokia beta tests Ovi Maps 3D for Macs, PCs

Nokia Ovi Maps 3D live for the web

Nokia has quietly trotted out a beta version of Ovi Maps 3D. The browser-based app renders a true 3D, textured version of a map with buildings, landscapes, and other key points going down in some cases to the individual tree level. Famous landmarks get quick shortcuts and, in the case of large areas such as Barcelona's Montjuic park, also get special fly-overs to show their features.

Initial access is confined so far to major cities such as London, New York, and San Francisco.

Visiting the 3D edition currently requires a plugin, but the add-on will work with both Mac OS X and Windows PCs and on most major browsers. Nokia hasn't said when it plans to finish the beta stage or if it it plans to expand the feature on mobile.

    Wow!

    Google Earth or Google Garbage? Did Paul Bunyan park his fat a** on the freeway? Looks like he left quite an impression.

    I'll give Nokia some credit Ovi is truly impressive.
