This 3-dimensional image of downtown Berkeley was created in less than 4 and 1/2 hours - 26 minutes or data collection and 4 hours of processing. Using lasers to measure distances and combining that information with 2-dimensional images, engineers at the University of Berkeley assembled a virtual reality model in a new process called "virtualized reality." The implications for mapping are obvious. Read about it at the New Scientist website.

And we thought the cartographic revolution had already happened.
