Last week Google released new improved 3D for New York City and the San Francisco Bay Area, which they announced on Google+. We had a look at the New York update and GEB reader Piotrek noted that when you enter Street View in New York using Google Earth, the application crashes. We tested it and found that the same problem also occurs in San Francisco. It doesn’t occur everywhere there is new imagery, but seems to be confined to areas with lots of sky scrapers.
With all this new imagery, let’s look around and see what we can see.
The old San Francisco Oakland bridge is being demolished, yet there is quite a lot of traffic on the bridge.
This isn’t an earth quake, it is 3D imagery from different dates.
This building is under construction.
Zoom out a bit, and the building is complete!
