Traditional Advertising Gets Boost in 3D Google Earth

Best Buy and Ross department stores in 3D in Google EarthIf your business has already made an investment in marketing via its building signage, you could reap some unexpected marketing rewards thanks to Google Earth. When someone takes the trouble of modeling your building in 3D, you want to make sure they also implement a phototexture of your signage. The example seen here is of a Ross clothing store and a Best Buy near Denver, Colorado. You can see these buildings with Google Earth 4 by turning on the “3D Buildings” layer. These buildings are in the Google 3DWarehouse so they got picked up and put in the layer.

    Amazingly, a testament to both Google Earth and the modelers who built those buildings, I recognized the buildings and viewpoint immediately even from the thumbnail.
