Tele Atlas 3D city images

Digital map and dynamic content creator Tele Atlas on Wednesday announced it will soon offer 3D, photorealistic images of major European city centers called Advanced City Models. Meant for in-car and portable navigation systems, the highly detailed images match the actual surroundings and help users find locations and services. The images were developed in conjunction with Norway-based BLOM, which provided Tele Atlas with aerial imagery of the city centers.

With its Advanced City Models, Tele Atlas is hoping users will find navigation experience improved, as it will be easier to recognize city centers, buildings and landmarks through a simple glance and regardless of whether they're driving or on foot.

By June, Tele Atlas will make 40 major European cities available and add more in quarterly releases. Sometime in 2010, Tele Atlas is expecting to have hundreds of cities mapped, including those from North America and Asia Pacific regions.

Tele Atlas has been providing 3D maps for Mio and Pioneer GPS units, as well as Sony's PSP, since 2006.
