Picked up via the excellent Google Earth Blog is this flythrough of Denver with the newly released buildings – this now makes it the most texture mapped city in Google Earth:

Frank, over at the Google Earth Blog, has another post which is worth a look examining the pros’s and con’s of Microsoft’s auto capture vs Google’s custom made buildings for city visualisation.

Google’s Denver is impressive but it sure doesn’t scale (unless of course you have vast amount of money and a dedicated team), Microsoft, on the other hand, has invested a substantial sum in automatic capture and it seems to be paying off.

Interesting times ahead..
