Virtual London – Available via Skape World January 2010

Its been some years coming but finally a high resolution, photomapped Virtual London model is about to be released. Its been produced by Infoterra under their new ‘Skape’ initative which we wrote about a few months ago. The results are quite simply stunning and possibly the best 3D city model we have seen to date.

We don’t have the full facts and figures yet, but the model launches to Skape users in January/February 2010. Its nice to see Infoterra taking the lead on this, they were the company who helped us out with our early Virtual London work and one of the few companies actively involved in University based research and sharing their data.

Take a look at http://www.skapeworld.com/ for more info.
