Cool New Thing: Manhattan Now in 3D

New, 3 comments

Since 2007, Google Earth's 3D Buildings layer hasn't offered much in terms of a photo-realistic portrayal of Manhattan, but that recently changed, and the Google Earth Blog can barely keep it in their pants: "Google has updated the 3D buildings in Google Earth for New York City! This is a HUGE update with at least hundreds (if not thousands) of new 3D buildings with photo textures applied. Basically, Google has completed nearly every building in Manhattan Island for Google Earth. Just fly to 'New York City' and turn on the 3D Buildings layer in Google Earth. Tilt your view so you can see the buildings in all their glory." [Google Earth Blog]
