Amsterdam – First Google Earth European 3D City

By May 22, 2007 2 Comments

Amsterdam is now available in 3D via Google Earth – rendered in the current grey building standard with photorealistic landmarks it can’t compete with the new cities being rolled out by Microsoft’s in Virtual Earth – such as Buffalo in the US and Swindon/Brighton in the UK – see our post on Populating the Digital Earth for more info and movies.

Nevertheless its still impressive:

Of note is Engadget’s reporting of the forthcoming Where 2.0 conference with announcements due on the use of technology used to scan building faces and improve the 3D portions of Google Maps and Google Earth.

Sadly we are not going to Where 2.0 – unless someone send us – but keep checking the Google Earth blog as Frank Taylor will be blogging from the event.
