Blom's oblique aerial navigation images: Like Doom for your GPS

Saw a very cool demo of an upcoming technology by Blom. It’s basically oblique, rendered navigation in three dimensions. The company takes aerial pictures of an area and extrapolates the angles and shadows to make 3D buildings with all the features of the real buildings. It only works on PCs now, but their oblique photography is in some navigation systems including some of Nokia’s offerings.
