Building the Austin Skyline in Google Earth


Recommended Posts


The new version of Google Earth allows users to create their own 3D buildings using their Sketchup tool and share them via google's 3D Warehouse. Right now there are several Austin buildings available, but not all. I think it would be a cool idea if we all pitched in to modelling the skyscrapers of austin, both current and planned, so that we can see how the new buildings will affect the Austin skyline from multiple perspectives. If we all were to model a couple buildings, then we could have every one of them available to create a virtual Austin!!!

btw you have to register for the 3D Warehouse, but it only requires email verification.
