HoloMaps Hits Microsoft’s HoloLens Headset with 3D Maps and Remote Collaboration

On Monday, developer Taqtile launched HoloMaps for Microsoft’s HoloLens augmented reality headset. The app is available to all HoloLens owners for free in the Windows Store, providing wearers with a 3D holographic map they can navigate through while viewing overlaying real-time data in the process. Even more, HoloLens owners can check out these 3D maps alone, or with additional headset owners.

“HoloMaps displays topography, infrastructure, and buildings in 3D while integrating data sources to bring contextually relevant information into the map. Collaborate and present to colleagues in the same room or remotely,” the company states.

According to Taqtile, HoloMaps users can annotate holographs, models, and collaborate and/or showcase holographic presentations to local individuals or other clients/partners that are not physically present. The app can also be used to capture pictures and videos for presentations and sharing.
