A bit more 3D to play with

A couple of noteworthy 3D-related items:
Beautiful 3D model of the Sheraton Keauhou Bay Resort: CyberCity 3D, who we mentioned yesterday for their 3D coverage in Chula Vista, has revealed a 3D model of the Sheraton Resort in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii. The quality of the building is quite remarkable. I like that they include trees in there, and I hope that someday soon Google will find a way to put 3D trees all over the earth. You can view the resort by using this KML file.
