The Home Greenover Project

We’ve shown you some neat use of the Google Earth Plugin from EarthvisionZ in the past, such as the ATP World Tour site last November, but their latest site is certainly their best yet.
Fox 31 News in Denver is now running its Home Green-Over Project, a contest offering $75,000 worth of renewable energy products and services. This contest is especially cool because of the great use of the Google Earth Plug-in on the site, which gives users seven interactive 3D tours of an energy efficient home.

Along with the wide view of the home, many of the tours feature cut-away looks so that you can see the products and services offered inside of the home as well.

All in all, it’s presented very well and it’s a great way to show off this kind of content. Be sure to go check it out for yourself. EarthvisionZ will also be launching their new website on Earth Day next week, with a ton of great new features for both visitors and businesses.
Kudos to EarthvisionZ for a job well done.

  1. Wow, for $75,000 I could get full solar power for my house and my mum’s house.

  2. Unrelated:
    How does one search for other peoples “my maps”?
    Could you do an article about this?
    I want to see if someone has plotted my local bus routes on a google map, but can’t find out how to search for this! Thanks.

  3. That is pretty neat! But please update the link in the post. It shows a “page not found” page when clicking the “Home green over project” link
