3D Landscape provides three different APIs for developers to use and display high quality 3D maps in web services or mobile applications.The 3D Landscape SDK consists of both a Java ME and an Android library that you can download and use to create your own innovative map applications. The maps for the SDKs are downloaded from a backend server and buffered in the mobile as needed

3D Landscape Features

  • Realistic maps in 3D
  • Free access to map data
  • Advanced rendering engine
  • Simple API

Below is a video of the 3D Maps in Action. Gotta love the speed of SnapDragon CPUs
