Google Earth automatically generated 3D areas

Thanks to GEB reader ‘ehog’ for letting us know that Győr, Hungary got the new 3D mesh recently.

Google first announced their method of generating 3D via stereophotogrammetry from aerial imagery in June 2012. As part of the announcement Google said that they expected this new technology to cover “communities of over 300 million people” by the end of the year. A year later, in July 2013, they were doing quite well and we counted around 150 cities with the new imagery. Progress continued, and in August 2013 Google announced that from October of that year they would no longer be pulling models from the Trimble 3D Warehouse as they wished to focus on more scalable methods.

This year we have covered the release of 3D imagery for Tokyo, and other Japanese cities, Christchurch, New Zealand, and London.

However, there has been no easy way to find the new automatically generated 3D areas that Google is adding to Google Earth. Google has not, as far as I am aware, ever released a KML with the locations as it often does for new satellite imagery.

Google has a list that can be found here. However, it is far from complete and even has some incorrect entries such as Forli, Italy which does not have the new imagery. It doesn’t even have some well known locations such as London, UK, which do have the new imagery.

The Wikipedia page for Google Earth also has a list of the new 3D areas, although it relies on helpful people noticing new areas and updating the list, and it, too, is not completely accurate. It does not, at the time of writing, include Győr, Hungary, and does not have all the entries from the Google list, such as Olbia, Italy, for example.

3D Mesh Map

So, we decided to create a KML file combining all the locations from the Wikipedia page, and the list from Google, and a couple of extras that aren’t in either list. And here it is!

We have included locations as given in the two lists, as well as the regions covered by 3D. We have made the KML a network link so that we can continually update it as we discover new areas.

Note that we have not included places that have the older type of automatically generated buildings that load as individual buildings. The newer method loads as a single mesh covering a whole area. Also note that the older type of 3D model does not display in ‘Earth Mode’ in the new Google Maps.

The best coverage is in California, and the worst is in Africa and Asia. Alaska is, I think, the only US state with no locations covered, but with its largest community, Anchorage, having an estimated 298,610 residents in 2012, maybe it didn’t quite make the cut.

If you know of any places not in the KML, please let us know in the comments below.

  1. Nothing happens when I click on the link for the KML file.

    • http://Timothy%20Whitehead says

      It should download a KML file which you then need to open in Google Earth. How to open downloads depends on which browser you are using.

    • Never mind. I had to restart Firefox for some reason.

  2. http://José%20Gonçalves says

    You should add Lisbon in Portugal

    • http://Timothy%20Whitehead says

      Lisbon uses the older style which has individual models for each building. I have not included areas like that in my map.

  3. The suburbs of Ioannina city in Greece! Unfortunatelly not the city itself.

    • http://Timothy%20Whitehead says

      Thank you, a new country!
      I have added it to the map, right click on the network link and select ‘refresh’ to see updates.

  4. Add Oshkosh, Appleton, and the rest of the “Fox Cities” in Wisconsin. Still no Milwaukee or Green Bay.

    • http://Timothy%20Whitehead says

      I have added it to the map, right click on the network link and select ‘refresh’ to see updates.

  5. http://ehog says

    Szombathely, Győr, In Hungary are missing.

    • http://Timothy%20Whitehead says

      Thank you, I don’t know how I forgot Győr, after mentioning it in my post!
      I have added both to the map, right click on the network link and select ‘refresh’ to see updates.

  6. http://bubollofo says

    Hinesville, GA (USA 🙂

  7. http://bubollofo says

    …and Cuiabá, Brazil (staduim area only)

    • http://Timothy%20Whitehead says

      I see all the World Cup stadiums have coverage of various sizes. I will be adding them.

      • http://Jonathan%20Rosas says

        In Natal, When 3D Cities imagery is active, The Arena Das Dunas, in Natal, it does have a odd effects and disappears and now is under Construction and is not finished, before the Arena Das Dunas was completed but now is Under Construction.
        In Manaus, Brazil, the delimiting line from 2D to 3D imagery is missing, in Manaus, the Only 3D Zone is the Arena Amazonia and their Arena.
        In Porto Alegre, before the Beira Rio Stadium was Finished, and now is Under Construction.

  8. http://bubollofo says

    I wonder why Google avoids capital cities and important tourist places like: Prague, Berlin, Milan, Venice, Barcelona, Vienna, Warsaw, Washington DC, Frankfurt (Main), Hamburg, Amsterdam, Milan, Monaco, Stockholm, Grand Canyon Village – but has time to fly and gather photos over small cities in Romania or Hungary (no offence 🙂 and even there we don’t have 3D mesh of Budapest. In what order do they do it? Where is the logic?

    • http://Chris says

      Does local sponsorship i.e. money play a part, plus local feelings about intrusion into privacy such as Street View has found in Germany and Austria?

    • http://ehog says

      Maybe they need more time to process the imagery, beacuse f.ex. Budapest (and its agglomeration) is approximately 4-5 times bigger than any other cities in Hungary. But I really don’t know, why Google captured Sighişoara, in Romania, that city has only 30000 residents…

    • http://Ryan%20K. says

      I would be nice if Google did a little explaining on the behind-the-scenes on their Lat Long Blog. I am totally perplexed about this.

  9. http://Chris says

    Timothy – a very helpful and welcome post. Good to see GEB moving into practical subjects like this. Have you edited Wikipedia including a link to your KML?

    • http://Timothy%20Whitehead says

      No I have not. You are welcome to do so, and anyone is welcome to update the Wikipedia list with information from our KML.

  10. Add Hinesville, GA United States

  11. http://Ryan%20K. says

    How did you manage to find the actual boundaries of the 3D areas? That seems like a lot of work to delineate all of them unless there was already some dataset available. Regardless, I’m still glad it’s included.

    • http://Timothy%20Whitehead says

      It was a lot of work. But given the positive responses so far, I think it was worthwhile.

  12. Here you have some places I miss in the KML:
    Spain: All the area between Sant Feliu de Guixols and Palamós (both included)
    France: La Rochelle and Clermont – Ferrand

    • http://Timothy%20Whitehead says

      Thanks. I have added the Spanish area. The French locations are the older type of 3D buildings.

      • Hey Timothy!, you’re right about the french locations!, but believe me!, I’m 100% sure that they were the new 3D type some weeks ago, I’ve even delimite the area!, it’s quite weird… maybe they were only testing?

        Anyway, thanks for this nice klm!

  13. They added Evora, Caldas da Raihna, Obidos and Torres Vedras (Potugal)

  14. http://alfski says

    Nice work Timothy. Thanks for doing the poly outlines. I did a map of these for Australia, but it only needed 4 places outlined!

    Missing… Big Bear Lake, CA.

    Also, Santa Cruz, Yuba City and Truckee, CA are showing as white filled polygons.

    I don’t suppose you could do a layer, which just has the poly outlines and not the labels?
    Only because the compete with the normal Labels.
    Or may re-organise the layer into “Outlines” and “Labels” so we can easily check/uncheck one or the other? Just a suggestion.


    • http://Timothy%20Whitehead says

      Thank you.
      I have implemented your suggestion. It makes it a little harder to look at all the items for one country / state, but it certainly is nice to be able to see only the regions.
      I hope I didn’t loose any places in the process.

      • http://alfski says

        very nice!

        I assume the idea is to maintain this in sync with the current 3D Imagery layer in Earth.

        You may want to record a “last checked” or “added on” date in the Info section?

        Having time ranges with the layer would be cool so you could see how the 3D Imagery has grown over time. It’s probably too late for the community to do this now.

        May want to investigate sharing this thru Google Maps Engine

  15. http://tomtom says

    This is a very helpful kml. Thanks.
    One question: Nuremberg is still not avialable…. I saw a few mouths ago, I found also in the GE buildings in 3d list at Wikipedia (still in the list), but its missing…. 2d again since 2 mounths. Do you know maybe why?

    • http://Timothy%20Whitehead says

      It has the older style of 3D buildings. I suspect someone just made a mistake when updating Wikipedia.

      • http://jebster says

        Nuremberg had auto-generated mesh back in July. The same was true for La Rochelle, Clermont-Ferrand and Nashville. Google seems to withdraw some areas after they’ve been added. Nashville has been withdrawn twice.

  16. http://bubollofo says

    Since we – “the googeearthblog community” 🙂 now have the most accurate and out to date list of areas covered by 3D mesh (even better than Wikipedia) don’t let this post disappear (behind next articles). Since we want people to constantly report new 3d areas – let’s make it a front page link!!! (like HOME ABOUT CONTACTS etc…)

  17. City of “Sines, Portugal” the unique city for now having the new 3d in Portugal

  18. http://jebster says

    The Farmington-Novi area northwest of Detroit has auto-generated imagery, as does the Humble-Spring
    area north of Houston.

    • My sister and brother-in-law used to live on Westerleigh Rd. in Farmington Hills. Last I checked, it was still flat (Detroit’s 3D pretty much stops at 8-Mile). So this is fairly new. Much of the Northern suburbs are still flat.

    • http://Timothy%20Whitehead says

      Thanks. Done.

  19. Add Fort Worth, TX

  20. http://Steven says

    This is a very helpful KML, must have took pretty long to make it that detailed 🙂

  21. http://alfski says

    The poly outline is missing a chunk of 3d imagery on the peninsula just West of North Richmond (North Bay Area, SF).

    • http://Timothy%20Whitehead says

      Thanks. Fixed. That’s an odd strip of data that must have been done separately from the rest.

  22. Like “bubollofo” said. We should not let this post disappear. Finally we have a complete list of all cities with the new 3D-imagery. I tried this for myself last month but with cooperation between many people we will have a “completed” list that can be updated as soon we see any new 3d-imagery 🙂
    Dont let this KML be lost!

  23. The Historical Imagery layer has not been updated in weeks. Ridiculous.

  24. Lincolnton, NC Has the 3D Mesh Imagery

  25. http://bubollofo says

    Oslo now has bigger coverage than before. PS. I have big blur over half of Oslo city center in my Google Earth (but not in Google Maps) – is just me? Its the only city with this problem. Any tips?

    • http://jebster says

      Unfortunately, it’s not just you. It appears to be be the Landsat base imagery showing through where there should be 3d imagery. The same phenomenon occurs in two small areas just west of Beaumont, California.

    • http://Ryan%20K. says

      I have the blur problem in Oslo as well.

    • I presume I see what you see in Oslo. I haven’t seen anything quite like that elsewhere, but I do occasionally run across spots where the 3D imagery only begins to render, then stops before completing the job. One such area that I can point to is along the Western shores of Lake Lansing, in Michigan (where the amusement part used to be). It’s east and a little north of East Lansing. One tile just never gets beyond the initial rendering phase. It’s surrounded by normal 3D, and not at the edge of the automatically-generated area. The surface of the lake seems to also be treated as a depression.

    • http://Timothy%20Whitehead says

      Thanks. I too am seeing the blurry patch, which can’t have been there when I did Oslo before, so it must have happened when they expanded the area.

  26. http://Sebastien says

    True, Oslo has a bigger covered area now:

    I tried to do the same job months ago, but it really is a great deal of work. Thank you Timothy.
    I used a white square to let the 3D data visually pop-up. I don’t know how you did and if it goes quickly than with my method.

  27. http://Timothy%20Whitehead says

    I also found odd effects at 48° 8’52.61″N 122°13’53.62″W down the top left side of the Everett / Seattle area. When you are zoomed out, there is clearly 3D imagery, but as you zoom in, some of the 3D imagery disappears. I have not yet checked whether it is only on my computer.

  28. http://bubollofo says

    BTW because new 3d cities/areas are being added almost every day – if you want to follow – visit:

    These are Google Earth Wikipedia article list of LATEST edits – and 90% of them are NEW 3d cities being constantly spotted and updated by Wiki editors.

  29. http://jebster says

    Just in: Davis, California.

  30. http://Chris says

    Also Victorville, CA

  31. http://ChrisAjayi says

    Livermore and Salinas CA

  32. http://jebster says

    More California: the Woodland Hills/Chatsworth/Simi Valley area northwest of Los Angeles.

  33. http://Jonah says

    Expanded coverage north of New york City

  34. They added Milan, Piacenza, Pavia and Syracuse in Italy, and Auxerre, Montpellier, Carcassonne and Strasboug in France

    • http://Timothy%20Whitehead says

      I saw the update on the Wikipedia page, but none of those locations appear to be the new type of 3D mesh. Are you referring to the older type of automatically generated buildings, or did they add them temporarily and remove them again, or has the update not reached all users yet?

  35. http://Frank says

    And also Stavanger, Norway was added.

  36. Norrköping, Sweden was added!

  37. Växjö (Sweden) and Karlstad (Sweden)

  38. Also Auckland, New Zeeland

  39. http://jebster says

    This has been a big week: Dublin, Ajaccio (Corsica), Oklahoma City and Memphis (TN).

  40. http://Timothy%20Whitehead says

    I will be adding Bordeaux, France, the first location I have actually found on my own!
    And Clermont-Ferrand, Albi, Roanne, Tarbes, Vannes, all in France.
    Antwerp, Belgium.

    • This is cool because this means Google are updating irregularly. Yesterday I was looking in Bordeaux and Antwerpen and at that time there were no 3D-imagery in those cities.

  41. http://Timothy%20Whitehead says

    Also thanks to Wikipedia editor Uricm55 for Montauban, France.

  42. Stuttgart, Germany was added today!

    • http://Timothy%20Whitehead says

      Thank you.

      I have also found Esbjerg, Denmark and Argostolion, Greece. There is probably a lot more we haven’t found yet!

      Cuenca and Jerez, Spain.

      Laval, France.

      Gujan-Mestras, La Rochelle, Quimper, France.

      Schweinfurt, Germany.

      La Roche-sur-Yon, France – From Wikipedia
      Alexandria, LA, USA – From Wikipedia

      Cholet, France

  43. http://Frank says

    Esbjerg must have been also added today, I checked it yesterday and there has been no mesh.

  44. http://Frank says

    Bergen, Norway did it too today! 🙂

  45. http://Anton%20Rudolfsson says

    Goiânia, Brazil. I dont know whether there are new imagery or not. Maybe we have missed it from another update.

  46. http://Anton%20Rudolfsson says

    Albacete, Spain

  47. Hi again, Timothy!, a new one, Santarem in Portugal.

  48. They added Ravena in Italy

  49. http://Anton%20Rudolfsson says

    Brive-la-Gaillarde, France
    Beauvais, France
    Saint-Quentin, France

  50. http://Frank says

    The northern part of Sardinia (Italy) has been updated, looks like a quite large area containing La Maddalena, Palau, Cannigione and others.

  51. http://Frank says

    San Francisco got new mesh and the area increased a bit, covering now also Bonita Cove and Rodeo Cove

    • http://Timothy%20Whitehead says

      Thanks. Is there any way to tell which bit got new mesh?

      • http://Frank says

        Dont know, I just realised its new in the northern parts of city centre (from Golden Gate Park towards north), quality seems to be improved. Southern parts still have the “old” mesh. I dont think there is a possibility to switch between old and new. Google doesnt seem to inform much about, unfortunately…

  52. http://Frank says

    And newly discovered: Lignano Sabbiadoro (Italy)

  53. http://bubollofo says

    haha…they didn’t even cover all Western-European capital cities – but they did San Francisco second time – google logic.

    • http://jebster says

      Someone in Mountain View is paying attention – Berlin has been added. I’m a bit surprised; I thought Warsaw and Stockholm would appear first, since there was oblique imagery for those cities in Google Maps last summer, and there wasn’t for Berlin. The coverage area for Berlin is good, too (unlike London).

    • http://Florin%20Arnautu says

      Why are you only focusing on western european cities an criticise the fact that there were mapped eastern euopean cities before some of the “western”. What is your criterion of priority? Ignorance is a desease. Maybe the most severe 😉

  54. http://ChrisAjayi says

    Visalia, Porterville, Selma. All in California

  55. http://Frank says

    Don’t know how you figure out new areas, but my “trick” is to be in a viewing distance of 30-50 km and then constantly turning on and off the 3d buildings layer while slowly moving with the space navigator (you also could move the globe and keep it constantely rolling while turning the layer on and off). As Google is using different ground imagery for the 3D mesh, you can easily see if there is one.

    • http://Sebastien says

      That’s a good trick.
      In addition to your trick, I use a kml file with a 120° super wide field of view. With it, you can see a lot more at a time.

      • http://Frank says

        That sounds interesting Sebastien, can you tell more about that kml?

        • http://Sebastien says

          It’s very easy: record a tour via the camcorder icon in the upper bar. This tour doesn’t need to move or even last a second, just start and stop it. Save it to the GE side bar normaly. Save the tour by right-clicking it to your desktop as a KML file (not KMZ), then open the kml file with Notepad. Just replace in this line below the 59 value by 119 (keep the .999999999999) and save.

          For tasks where a wide view is usefull like in this thread, I use 119°.
          For everyday navigation, I found 89 to be pleasant. Everything above can mess with your brain 🙂

        • http://Sebastien says

          Sorry, the line is this one:

    • http://Timothy%20Whitehead says

      What I do is draw a polygon over the whole continent with a yellow fill and 50% opacity. Then when you are over a 3D area and low enough altitude, it shows through the polygon very clearly. However I need to be at an eye altitude of under 10km so your method may allow faster coverage.

  56. http://Frank says

    Berlin and parts of Potsdam (Germany) have been added today 🙂

  57. http://Frank says

    As I could see from Wikipedia I also confirm Freiburg (Germany)

  58. http://Anton%20Rudolfsson says

    Osaka (Japan) has the new 3D-imagery. I am not sure whether it was added now or weeks ago.

    Hey, my fellow 3d-mesh obsessed. Does the KML file with the mesh covered areas automatically update itself whenever the author changes/adds something or how does that work?

    • http://Timothy%20Whitehead says

      I didn’t set any automatic refreshing in the KML so I think you have to right click and select ‘refresh’ to get the latest.

      • http://Johann says

        Right click on what exactly? Sorry, I don’t really know much about all that stuff.

    Hey, so I just now saw something kinda funny and interesting.

    You might already have found out yourself but you might not so I’m trying to explain it here.

    I don’t know if it only occurs to me but I don’t have the fastest internet connection and when I zoom in really quickly using the right click on my mouse it looks like the areas right next to where the 3d mesh outline ends are still starting to load more 3d buildings but almost instantly after, it disappears and it goes right back to normal satellite photos.

    Makes me think that those areas around the now available and published 3d mesh are also “available” but not published by Google yet. I saw that when checking out my house in Coswig, Germany, which is right next to Dresden, and misses being covered in 3d by only a kilometer or so…

    I don’t know if you got what I was trying to say, I lived in the U.S. for a year but my English still isn’t the best but if you did you should check it out.

    Just thought I’d share that here,



    • http://Johann says

      It looks like a VERY VERY blurry 3d mesh but then goes back to being a satellite photo.

      Just in case you weren’t getting it.

    The new “outlines” are not very efficient. In fact, it covers what I’m having the KML file for… I think it was better as it was before

    • http://Timothy%20Whitehead says

      The old style outlines are still available. Just click on ‘Sorted by country’. I may switch that to being the default depending on feed back from readers.

      • http://Sebastien says

        That’s good to see both, though what is the point with filled area? It gives a sense of the current coverage, is that all?
        I think, newbies could get frustrated with your file if they don’t find the “sorted by countries” first.

  160. http://Johann says

    That’d be me. Can’t find that “sorted by countries”.

    And I share Sebastien’s opinion. I’m always up for something new. Maybe it’s better, though, to have the old stile as default.

  177. http://Johann says

    Just realized that the “new” 3d mesh in Vienna must be more than two years old. You can see the DC Tower Skyscraper barely under construction although it was finished October 2013! Crazy that it took them so long to release it.

  178. http://Johann says

    Also – and I don’t want to make something like a picky impression on you guys but – as a German I just wanted to say that in the coverage area of Mannheim in Germany there’s also a placemarker set for the cities of Speyer and Weinheim. However, I can promise you those cities are nothing but suburbs that were lucky receiving coverage, instead the cities of Ludwigshafen and Heidelberg are in fact well known German major cities that do deserve to have a placemarker. I know that Speyer and Weinheim are also mentioned in the Wikipedia article but just like I said, I don’t see why.

    The reason why I say this is because I love this KML file and I can’t imagine my Google Earth without it because I find Google’s 3d mesh awfully fascinating and I am always looking for a way to improve the file by posting on this page.

    And last but not least, I wanted to ask wether, when I see some incorrect outlines, if you want me to tell you like I did when I saw it in Mikonos, Greece. I saw a couple missplaced ones before and I didn’t say anything because I didn’t want to seem like the grumpy offensive German stereo-type. lol

    have a good one

    • http://Timothy%20Whitehead says

      Hi Leonardo, we are not part of Google and do not add the 3D imagery ourselves. We are just monitoring what Google adds.

      • http://Leonardo says

        Thanks for replying, then, if the list of cities in Wikipedia is updated, and suppose “Lima Peru” auto-generated appears, you are upgrading to 3D images of the city ?, if I’m wrong, correct me

        Sorry for the bad English, I hope you understand, Greetings

        • http://Johann says

          We are not Google. We only monitor when we see that cities got updated in 3d. Both this list and the list in Wikipedia are having the cities added AFTER they’ve been spotted in Google earth. You CANNOT make request. No one can. The process of adding cities happens behind closed doors of Google and we do not know when they are added.

          Hope this helps your understanding,

          • http://Leonardo says

            Hello Johann, thank you for responding, I think I understood, that means that no one knows about it, when or at what point will update the cities from different countries to 3D images, thank you very much, and I removed the doubts, Greetings!

    Have a look at 3D Warsaw, Poland. Its central part is pretty well modelled, but the model does not cover even all downtown and on the edges difference in ground level reach 10 meters and more. 3D photo edges going across densly build-up areas with such error in elevation are horrible :-/

    Question is: which model is correct: the general (old) or the 3D photo (new one)? I made a short research and there is no such issue with other cities in Europe.

  478. Hi, Timothy,
    you can add please Ahmedabad, India

    • http://Johann says

      There seems to ba a common missunderstanding.

      Timothy does NOT create the 3d models himself, this blog-post is only there to monitor which cities have been added by Google. The comments you see above are not requests, they are simply to let Timothy know what cities have been newly updated to Google Earth so he can add those to the KML file which he has created. I recommend reading the whole post.

      This is blog is also not operated by Google.

      Requests for 3d areas CANNOT be made.

    Hey Timothy:
    I will draw the outlines myself to export to the kml file. How to export my drawn outlines to the kml file?
    Does anyone know how to share the folder with the outlines? Please Reply.

    • http://Timothy%20Whitehead says

      Hi Jonathan, if you wish to do some outlines, all you need to do is draw the outlines and send them to me as a KML and I will insert them in the master KML file. For new areas, all I need is the outline. For expanded areas it gets a bit more complicated as we keep track of both the total new area covered and the expanded piece. I would suggest you start with the most recent ones and work backwards as Anton may have already got some of the older ones done.

      • http://Jonathan%20Rosas says

        What color of the outline i have to draw?
        Red, Orange, White Orange, White, Blue or Black or any color to export to KML file. Please answer me

        • http://Timothy%20Whitehead says

          It doesn’t matter. It will become the correct colours when it goes into the master KML file.

          • http://Jonathan%20Rosas says

            Once i have done the outline kml file, how to send to the master kml file? I have to send what via?

  703. http://Jonathan%20Rosas says

    Hey Timothy, i have drawn the Pretoria, South Africa 3D Outline, the outline is ready to export. Now is ready to get added into the master kml.

  704. http://Jonathan%20Rosas says

    My first Outline was successful, ¡and it appears in the Kml!. Thanks for your help

  705. http://Jonathan%20Rosas says

  706. http://Frank says

    I have done Niigata, Japan and Civitavecchia, Italy and sent it to Timothy.

    Dear everybode,
    I did some work and collected all entries of which I think they are still missing.
    Lets join our work and collaborate to that wonderfull collection.
    Please look here:
    If you would like to draw some cities, please mark in the sheet (maybe with your name) to avoid double efforts. Lets send the KMLs to Timothy. Hope that can work, please correct me if somethings wrong.

      Hi, Zachary.
      This is an unofficial google earth blog, meaning it’s not operated by Google itself. This post was used to monitor 3D areas in google earth that have been found by users. It’s not a page to request 3D areas as this blog, its authors or its readers don’t have any power to make them as none of us works for the actual company that is Google. When we see a new 3D mesh showing up in google we used to post it here. Now we do the same thing on a different post which you can find in one of the comments above.
