As previously mentioned (in my article last week about the University of Colorado/Boulder in 3D blog entry) Google is holding a contest for the best 3D model of a college campus created with SketchUp and posted for viewing in Google Earth. Google has just announced the contest on the Official Google Blog, and there are more details than when I first discovered the contest. Entries need to be submitted before 1-June-2007. The contest will be judged by a panel of experts from places like Disney, Electronic Arts, and even architects. See the contest web page for details and registration instructions. Follow the link to my earlier story to see a video showing the Boulder campus already completed by some Googlers at SketchUp, or you can just go to Boulder with GE 4 and turn on the “Buildings -> Best of Google Warehouse” layer to see it in full detail. By the way, some of the teams with the best entries will win a 3-day trip to the Googleplex for a work shop on 3D modeling.
