Experience March Madness in Google Earth

If you’re a college basketball fan, your favorite time of the year has arrived — March Madness!
In true Google form, they’ve modeled all of the stadiums being used in the tournament in beautiful 3D, giving you a great way to check out all of the venues from within Google Earth.

Some of the stadiums even include indoor modeling, like we saw for the Super Bowl this year, such as Reliant Stadium in Houston, TX.

You can view all of the stadiums in a few different ways:
• Their college basketball tournament map, which provides information about all of the games and venues.
• This KML tour for Google Earth.
• By watching the tour video below:

Personally, I’m pleased to see Michigan make it to the Dance this year, since they don’t go nearly as often as they used to. Who are you rooting for in this year’s tournament?

  2. Great stuff. I’m a Husky fan so I am a happy man. Shame on our women as we could have had the double again.
