We’ve discussed a variety of companies that can help you get your home or business modeled in Google Earth. I’m always happy to show off new companies, as increased competition is always good for us consumers.
The latest is a company called PopArchitexture. They got their start in Google’s “Build Your Campus” competition back in 2006.
PopArchitexture offers three different pricing levels:
• ‘Pure and Simple’ tier: For $95, receive a 3D digital model viewable in Google Earth or embeddable on any website.
• ‘Detailed’ tier: For $295 and up, receive a detailed 3D digital model for GE or embeddable.
• ‘Sophisticated’ tier: For $595 and up, receive a hand built 3D paper model as well as a detailed 3D digital model.
In addition, you can get a 10% discount on any order that uses the voucher code ‘GEARTHBLOG’.
The paper models are a unique option, and they appear to be quite cool. Here is an example of one they recently built for a client:
Of course, they’re not the only option out there. We’ve covered a variety of different companies in the past, and here is a brief rundown:
Concept 3D: They offer custom 3D models in various formats including high quality photorealistic renders to Google Earth. They also offer web development services and interactive campus mapping service in Earth/Maps using 3D, 360 degree photography and video, which can leverage their Campus Bird interactive map site and CMS. Prices vary based on scope of project.
CyberCity 3D: For residential 3D they offer two options: “Premium” ($100-$150), usually done with terrestrial photo-textures provided by client and “Deluxe” ($200-$300), which includes more detail with added geometry.
Estate 3D: As we covered a few months ago, for $99 they’ll do a single building that’s composed of 50 faces or less.
Luna Tech Designs: They provide 3D modeling services, 360 degree photography, and custom 3D Geo portal services. Their community based portal system can integrate data directly from participating chamber online databases, municipal GIS systems, business websites, and rich media content from anywhere on the web all through a single interface. Average prices for 3D models range from $100 to $400. Portal service pricing varies based on scope of project.
