Google has finally added 3D imagery to London, and it appears they’ve done a great job with it. As with other recent cities, it appears that their techniques for creating this imagery continue to improve and London seems to be the best-looking 3D city we’ve seen so far!
In particular, streets are smoother than many others we’ve seen, and buildings tend to have fewer random artifacts sticking out of them. It’s imperfect, but improving very quickly. As I’ve mentioned before, I hope that Google eventually uses street view imagery to improve it further, but this is certainly another step in the right direction.
To try it for yourself, you can grab this KML file to fly to London, and just make sure you have the “3D Buildings” layer turned on.
