Your City in 3D

Not content with photographing, filming, or otherwise recording every nook and cranny of our planet, some people choose to spend their spare time creating virtual 3D models of real-life buildings to further enhance the immersive nature of Google Earth. Google encourages local governments and colleges to produce 3D models of their cities, towns, and campuses--and for those of us who don't have the resources available to institutions, it provides SketchUp, software with which anyone can fairly easily create a 3D model of a house, school, office, shed, or treehouse. The Google Earth 3D Warehouse displays the models, and your models may be selected to become part of the 3D Warehouse layer within Google Earth.
