Map land race continues into the Amazon!

Amazon have marked a sharp change in corporate direction by buying up 3D mapping start-up UpNext yesterday for an undisclosed sum.

With Apple planting their flag firmly in the ground for their own 3D mapping software being used on iOS 6 Amazon are now moving into this territory on their own horse with this purchase.

Did you see Google have already started mapping in 3d and have built custom devices to capture the world in 3d to eventually integrate into google maps. It’s already working in app form but will soon integrate the pictures from street view into the same mapping similar to that of Apple.
