Yesterday, the Google 3D Warehouse Twitter account (@3DWH) mentioned that Bowling Green State University had 86 3D models from their campus in the 3D Warehouse, so we had to check it out. They’ve since added another one more building, bringing the total to 87. The buildings are remarkably detailed, and include things such as accurate steps and realistic fences, as seen below.
None of the buildings are in Google Earth yet, but I’d expect them to arrive in the next 3D model update; probably later this week. [UPDATE: Most of the buildings are now in Google Earth.] In the meantime, you can download this KML file to see the locations of the buildings, and then choose to load the full 3D model for any that interest you.
Universities seem to be adding buildings at an increasingly rapid rate. We’ve recently told you about Northeastern University and Boston University, and I expect we’ll see more in the coming months.
