The folks at Earth@Sg have released an excellent Google Earth visualization of the setting of next year’s Singapore Formula 1 (F1) car race. They have created some very nice 3D models of the downtown area, the grand stand, the race course, trees, and the Singapore Flyer ferris wheel. They also give you instructions for setting up your “Touring” options in Google Earth so you can pretend you are an F1 race car flying down the race course. Earth@Sg call themselves the Singapore Geo-Mashup Community. They have a number of Google Maps mashups at their web site as well. And they are using the same set of Singapore 3D models for Google Earth to show the setting of this summer’s Singapore National Day Parade with a similar flying tour of the Singapore Marina Bay area. (NOTE: You should turn off the F1 collection before loading the National Day Parade collection). Earth@Sg has done a great job!
