Nokia has acquired the 3D mapping service Earthmine. The terms of the deal are confidential, so there's no way of knowing how much cash Nokia shelled out for it.



The idea behind the purchase is for Nokia to import Earthmine's mapping street-level graphics into HERE Maps and eventually its entire Maps ecosystem.

Currently Google has the upper hand in street-level imaging and Nokia hopes that this acquisition will help it catch up faster.
