They don't have an english website yet but they seem to be promising maps with 3D overlays at resolutions at or better than google. Check out their "produkte" for some very cool streamed video.

Just gorgeous.

It is pretty amazing. We should build fantasy-oriented add ons for the 3D mappen !!

That will require us fantasy mappers to build good quality grayscale height maps (not just render some clouds). My work is progressing in this direction anyhow, so I'll get cracking on that soon.

Theres a UK kinda thing thats been around for many years now. Have a look at this...

http://www.fugawi.com/web/products/fugawi_uk_digital_maps_v2.htm

the section down at SkyView air photos. You can use a GPS track and overlay it on the 3D map. Its pretty cool.

Don't forget that I make a real time 3D terrain viewer which is free and here (http://www.viewing.ltd.uk/cgi-bin/viewingdale.pl?category=dragons_flight). Theres some sample terrains to try in several places on the forum - like here (http://www.viewing.ltd.uk/viewingdale/temp/forum_demos/PirateCaves/Terrain.zip) and here (http://www.viewing.ltd.uk/viewingdale/temp/forum_demos/PirateCaves/Caves.zip)
Web site is slow today so it might have some issues downloading. Probably people hammering my 30Mb downloads on the other thread all at once :shock:

I love the name. I can just imagine the question that prompted the name.

"We have no idea where we are!

"Where the Fu-gawi?!
