Even more 3D in Google Earth

Posted by Bruce Polderman, Product Manager

Just in case you hadn't heard, we released Google Earth 4.3 a few weeks ago. The new version includes (among other things) tens of thousands of photo-textured 3D models of buildings, bridges and other structures. We've improved performance, so thoroughly-modeled cities like San Francisco and Munich "pop" into view much faster than they did in the previous version of Google Earth -- you really need to see it for yourself.

Many of you have created 3D building models for Google Earth and published them to the 3D Warehouse. Google Earth 4.3 includes the best of these models, plus additional ones that we created and even more that were contributed to Google by cities and towns around the world.

Read my post on the Google Lat Long blog to find out more about 3D cities in Google Earth, and watch this video to learn about all the cool new features in the latest version. If you haven't already done so, be sure to download Google Earth 4.3 and give it a whirl.

The google video blog doesn't allow users to leave comment so can you direct this comment to the appropiate source?

Where are the google video catagories? How can I add them back?

When can we expect other cities to appear? What countries will be given preference?
