A company called 3D RealityMaps has released a new app that lets you take virtual tours using satellite images, of Mount Everest.
The app “Mount Everest 3D” by 3D Reality Maps offers the world’s highest-resolution 3D map of the highest mountain on earth for smartphones and tablets. The map is based on satellite images from unique satellite WordView2 of DigitalGlobe and is so precise that the mountain is represented absolutely realistic.
There’s a fully immersive free version (for both the Apple iOS or Android OS for smartphones or tablets) but if you are a hard core Everest fan you can buy the pro-version (through the free version) which includes GPS data, virtual tours, waypoints, and offline maps–in case your provider doesn’t happen to have coverage in the Himalayas.
Then, surf over and take a tour of our Everest (Hey, it’s our blog, right?). We don’t have a 3D App yet but if you are interested you can contact us and actually touch our Everest, run it through the paces, and see if it could help you get more done–even if your work environment is as rugged as Mount Everest.
And no Sherpa required.
