Apple acquires yet another mapping company, C3, further fueling speculation that it will be replacing Google Maps functionality on iOS devices in the next 12 months.
Above is an example of the capabilities of C3′s mapping platform. Below we have a description of the company and a job posting from Apple. Check out the original source of this info.

The images are then used to automatically reproduce the shape of the objects with very high accuracy. After that, an image processing software automatically drapes each shape with the texture chosen from the pictures of each object. The same process is being applied for all objects - buildings, houses, trees, and hills - the result is a seamless canvas of 3D-data where the resolution (8 to 12 centimeters per pixel) and quality is consistent over the entire model.

It’s particularly true when you are dependent and helpless when your brain is developing but it’s true even in adults and even at the end of life. #Interpersonal Neurobiology
While it seems like many nonprofits are stuck in the past, they’re there with good reason. The past has former glories, holds what has worked and offers predictable models for success. It’s not that what we learned in the past is no longer useful to us. It is. But we can’t succeed with just history books. We need a more thorough education. #sentiment
