Sample Photomapping in Google Earth

We have placed online a first draft output using our in-house software to obtain accurate height/facade data from photographic modelling. Using a camera calibrated algorithm we can ensure accurate placing of windows/doors etc to rapidly create city models.

With the beta version of Google Earth, these can then be easily imported and viewed. The software is currently being developed, if you would like further details please feel free to email.

You can download the kmz file to fly into the model in Google Earth here (4Mb)

    Yes, great stuff here. How about using the new streaming facilities GE 4 claims to be able to implement? Have you had a go at it?
