NEW YORK Google has made another move towards diversification, purchasing digital mapping company Keyhole Corp.

Three-year-old Keyhole combines a database of mapping information and images collected from satellites and airplanes with software to give users a three-dimensional digital image of the location that they’ve requested. Users can zoom in from space-level to street-level, tilt and rotate the view or search for other info such as hotels, parks, ATMs or subways.
