Two More 3D Cities Added to Google Earth

Google has had a busy week. Not only did they release Google Earth version 5.1 and then release new imagery for many parts of the world, but today they added two more cities in 3D: Copenhagen, Denmark and Marseilles, France.

Copenhagen, Denmark in 3D

The addition of Copenhagen is very timely, as Google just recently released some tools in preparation for the COP15 climate change conference in Copenhagen. Oddly, though, the building that will house the conference (the Bella Center) was a bit too far away from downtown to get modeled.
To view these or any other 3D buildings, make sure you turn on the 3D Buildings layer inside of Google Earth.

  1. Great job, Google – but the problem about the Copenhagen 3D feature is that you seriously need to implement some new photos as the basis for the 3D feature.
    E.G. the Cop15 and the IOC congress is taking place in Bella Center in the district Ørestad. And the image of Ørestad seems to be about 3-5 years old.
    Ørestad is a new town and of course
    its hard to keep up with the constructions – but still – please renew your photos!
