“Emergency workers could use the models to figure out the best way to respond to natural disasters or terrorist attacks”The first user will probably be the US army, which funded much of the research. "Speed makes the system very useful to urban war fighters," says Deal. Each patrol can record new information about its surroundings, updating the model recorded by the previous patrol. Soldiers can keep up with changes to the cityscape, such as new barricades or destroyed buildings. "It's a vast improvement over current military capability," he says. Zakhor has started a spin-off company funded by the Pentagon's Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency to develop an even faster version that creates models in real time."

Personally, I'm looking forward to the uses this would have with my hiking.
