As we reported yesterday Virtual Earth now includes the first UK 3D cities of any earth browser. Interestingly these cities are Brighton and Swindon which we assume have been chosen as test subjects for the technology in terms of 3D capture. In the movie below we fly over firstly the coastal town of Brighton and then on to Swindon.

I think we can safely assume that more cities will follow using their automatic capture technique and the results to date are impressive. Compared to Google Earth i think Virtual Earth has a slight edge in terms of 3D cities, purely due to the automatic nature of their capture compared to Google’s SketchUp approach.

The next 6 months will be interesting in terms of city visualisation…
