Street View in 3-D Gets a Competitor


Street View competitor Norc, who have Street View type imagery in Austria, Czech Republic, Poland, Romania, Russia, Slovakia and Hungary, have added the option to view interactive panoramas in 3-D.

Last week Google added a 3-D option to Google Street View. If users have 3-D glasses they can now view the Eiffel Tower, Buckingham Palace, The White House and other sites around the world on Google Maps in glorious 3-D.

Norc, who use Google Maps to show the location of their Street View type imagery, also has this option. Just as with Google Maps the images have a 3-D glasses shaped button that when selected enables the viewer to view interactive panoramas in 3-D.

Unfortunately I don't have any 3-D glasses to test out either provider, but my 3-D spies tell me that the service looks much better in Norc's imagery than in Google Street View.
