It was just last month that Google added some new cities to building maker, and now they’ve done it again. This time they’ve added five new cities in Argentina (Buenos Aires, Córdoba, Mar Del Plata, Mendoza, Rosario) as well as Ottawa, Canada.
The new 3D buildings will be a welcome addition in these cities. For example, Buenos Aires has solid 3D coverage, but most of the buildings are gray; hopefully Building Maker users (like you!) will help to bring some color to the city.
Even better, they’re offering a contest to encourage users to build models in these new cities, by offering prizes for the Best Model and Most Models between now and August 8. Top prize in each category is a Casio GPS enabled camera, so it’s a pretty sweet prize.
Head out to the building maker site and try it for yourself. So far I have 17 models that have been accepted into Google Earth via Building Maker. How many have you done?
