Slated to be the next big thing in 3D mapping? That’s what stealthy Berkeley, CA based company earthmine is hoping to be. Earthmine takes over where Google Street View and Microsoft Virtual Earth left off. Just like Google and Microsoft, earthmine sends out multiple cars with powerful camera’s strapped to their roofs. However,unlike the other two, earthmine uses a stereoscopic system with wide angle lenses that allow them to capture fully spherical images of the surrounding environment. The images gathered are extremely rich with data. So clear, in fact, that they will be able to be accurately measured despite the perspective issues that arise from creating three dimensional images on a two dimensional screen. Photosynth and Everyscape are two innovators in this space, but do not intend to map the world.
