2011 International CES
LAS VEGAS– C3 Technologies today released its first software development kit (SDK) for creating search, navigation and geo-location desktop and mobile applications that utilize the company’s photo-realistic 3D maps.
“It’s time for the interface to catch up with the amazing innovation that mobile and desktop developers are delivering to the market every day”
The C3 SDK comes with 3D maps of San Francisco and London for developing and testing applications that can work with the more than 100 maps in the C3 database of cities and regions in the U.S., U.K., central Europe and Scandinavia. An additional 22 cities, including major metro areas in Asia and South America, are scheduled for release in April.
“It’s time for the interface to catch up with the amazing innovation that mobile and desktop developers are delivering to the market every day,” said Mattias Åström, C3 Technologies CEO. “C3’s SDK allows developers of new mobile, social, location-based apps to give their users the amazing experience of seeing the world the way it really is, instead of boring, flat 2D abstractions.”
Cities now available for license in the C3 database include London, Barcelona, Stockholm, Copenhagen, Oslo, Boston, Miami and San Francisco.
Pricing and Availability
The new C3 Software Development Kit sells for $1,000 and is now available.
