Vienna goes 3D

Late last week, Google pushed out 3D buildings for Vienna, Austria. I played with it over the weekend, and it’s amazing! I don’t know the exact numbers, but I’d guess that it’s among the best 3D coverage of any city on the planet. I was floored by the level of detail in Milan a few months ago, but I’m pretty sure that Vienna is even more widely covered.

  1. My two favorites are New York City and Philadelphia.
    New York City: Lots of beautiful buildings.
    Philadelphia: I live near here and many many buildings, especially ones that are made in Building Maker.
