in3d’s work in the Napa Valley is a company that you may not have heard of, but with the kind of work they’ve just released you’ll certainly be hearing more about them.
in3d is a geosocial media development company that works with a variety of clients in northern California, including wineries, businesses and towns. Their site won’t be going live for a few weeks, but you can already see some of their remarkable work in the video below, which showcases the Napa Valley region:

So far they have built around 40 locations in the region, and all of these buildings can be found in Google Earth. However, they don’t have a KML to help you view them all easily. That would be a nice touch, and I would imagine that it (or something similar) will be available when their site launches later this summer.
3D development is a rapidly growing field, as we showed you last week. This kind of competition is good for everyone, as it will result in more high quality models for all of us to enjoy.

  1. Thanks for the coverage and kind words Mickey! But we can’t take too much credit – Napa Valley has such beautiful locations that it’s hard to not make it look absolutely beuatiful. … Your intuition is right – we’ve got some neat KML-ish / organizational features coming soon. Look forward to sharing those soon.
    Love the blog! Keep up the great work.

  2. The video is gone.
