More 3D imagery for Google Earth Mobile

A quick look at the enhancements to 3D imagery from Google Earth and 3D earth imagery for entire cities included in the update for Google earth for mobile.  This from the Google blog… Since 2006, we’ve had textured 3D buildings in Google Earth, and today we are excited to announce that we will begin adding 3D models to entire metropolitan areas to Google Earth on mobile devices. This is possible thanks to a combination of our new imagery rendering techniques and computer vision that let us automatically create 3D cityscapes, complete with buildings, terrain and even landscaping, from 45-degree aerial imagery. By the end of the year we aim to have 3D coverage for metropolitan areas with a combined population of 300 million people.  See more on the official Google blog and be sure to catch details of the cool Street View Trekker, enabling data capture from amazing places like the Grand Canyon and more!
