Google’s Cities in 3D program is doing a lot of great things. They’ve helped a number of cities develop some nice 3D buildings, including Fredericton, Canada and McMinnville, Tennessee.
Now some additional buildings have been added to a few cities: Rotterdam (The Netherlands), Catalunya (Spain) and Boulder (Colorado, US).
Sadly, most (if not all) of these new buildings are the grey, untextured kind. Still, they’re certainly better than nothing, and I’m sure we’ll slowly see them gain texture over the coming months.
If you’re looking for some nicer-looking buildings, check out the new models at the MIT (Massachusetts Institiute of Technology) campus. Browse them in the 3D Warehouse, or use this KML to fly directly there. Concept3D built the models, and did a great job with them!
