The pace of growth in the technology of Google Earth has grown so fast this year, it is sometimes hard to take notice of the more “mundane” additions. It’s been a while since I wrote about the addition of a 3D model in Google Earth. Thanks to a little tweet, I saw a new 3D model of the USS New Jersey Battleship which is located on the river in Camden, New Jersey – seen here with Philadelphia in the background. The model is viewable as part of the 3D Buildings layer (again, I think the layer needs to be re-named with all these non-building 3D objects). You can view it here .
The model was created by A R Baboon who has created many other models in the 3D Warehouse, six of which are in the Google Earth 3D Buildings layer.
