  1. This is great news!

  2. A couple of other South African cities also got 3D updates including Durban. Most of the World Cup hosting cities got updates. I did a post on my blog with a KML of all the stadiums that are being used for the World Cup

  3. All of these South African cities that have been recently made 3D are also available in Building Maker but unofficially – they are not listed there – one just have to zoom in South Africa and need to know where exactly the city is. I have already modelled one building that is now accepted to Google Earth in Port Elizabeth.
