We’re getting ready to sail our catamaran Tahina down to Miami next week. We’re going to attend the Miami Boat Show and fill up the boat with new gadgets and equipment for our circumnavigation starting later this year.
As I was perusing the excellent models in the 3D buildings layer for Miami (added back in October), I noticed that there is a 3D cruise ship (Carnival’s “Fascination”). This is the first time I remember seeing a ship in the 3D Buildings layer. Although, there are many other objects like bridges, sculptures, and other surprises in the 3D Buildings layer. Given that this is the main cruise ship dock for Miami, that it definitely warrants having a ship in the layer. The SketchUp model was built by Josh Wilson – who also built the excellent Sydney Opera House model (and many other 3D models) found in Google Earth. Great work Josh!
