new webgl nokia maps: progress

I’ve been kicking some files from the new Nokia 3D WebGL maps back and forth with Ryan Alexander, and my attempts to pick out the geometry are starting to get some results.

Nokia’s texture files:

My points in those same files—a visual match!

Dumping a bunch of X, Y, Z’s into Mac OS X Grapher.app:

  6. Hi gpavlidi - I've posted to your blog as well, but thought it worth mentioning here that I've posted my own code (so far) to Github: https://github.com/migurski/NokiaWebGL
