Rotterdam, Netherlands goes 3D

Earlier this month, Google added a bunch of grey 3D buildings to a handful of cities, including Rotterdam.
Now they’ve added a lot of fully-textured buildings to the city, and it looks great!


As Google points out, over 100 of the 3D buildings in Rotterdam were created by SketchUp and Building Maker users.
To see it for yourself, you can fly there with this KML file or watch the video below for a brief tour.

  3. Rotterdam is Europe’s most modern city with a lot of modern architecture and now it’s available in 3D! It’s great!
