New 3D imagery for Google Earth

Googlegoogle earthmobileandroid3d3d buildings3d cities45-degree imagery

Since 2006, we've had textured 3D buildings in Google Earth, and we're excited to announce that we'll begin adding 3D models to entire metropolitan areas to Google Earth in the near future.

Thanks to new imagery rendering techniques and computer vision, we're able to create 3D cityscapes, complete with buildings, terrain and even landscaping, from 45-degree aerial imagery. 

By the end of the year, we aim to have 3D coverage for metropolitan areas with a combined population of 300 million people.

This is genius. I already feel like I live in the future, can't wait for more.
This is really cool, but sad that it's not done for every city yet

is there ANY way to get these 3D surfaces into sketchup or 3DS max? or any 3D design software for that matter.
on 0:13 what city is that

Two years on still no 3D images. Come on Google, what's going on?

what is very strange is if you go look at Russia there are almost no 3D rendered buildings other than a few monuments and government buildings. . Also same with almost all Asian countries that are not part of the west . go visit Thailand or Vietnam or Russia . this seems strange to me if its apparently done by satellites . However the evidence suggests flight airspace and taking photos is the real issue , that the photos are really taken by low altitude 737 planes and google would need permission to fly low enough to take such high definition photos . Optically the resolution and clarity makes no sense for satellites or even high altitude planes to take such clear pictures through clouds, since if you have ever been up in plane as you take off the clouds are very dense you will see nothing and no matter what BS NASA or google claim , you cannot clearly do X ray vision unless you are some super hero in a movie . Also satellites are 300 miles away, optically they would not be ideal since the atmosphere alone ,even on the clearest of days would build up to distort the images. Google are now using remote drones to take photos so this confirms my view that the satellites were never used to do this images, just simple planes .The rest is just like magicians trick from google and NASA , "all Smoke and mirrors" LOL !

I wish people would give google a break to be honest. Mankind has always sought to map the world and this is our latest effort. So cool!
Who's controlling this 3D imagery??
I was just checking google maps and I noticed my entire city was being rendered in 3D, buildings, trees, and even the ground had elevation. didn't hear anything about it but its very cool.

please add this imagery to google maps on iOS and Android apps instead of web-only

Not only are major cities modeled. Now their doing it for suburban and rural areas. They modeled my neighborhood in detail and I live in BFE. I can do a virtual tour of everyone's back yard now. That is sick. I think their goal is to recreate the entire earth in the smallest detail down to insect level. Google is going to create the matrix that we will all be enslaved in some day.

If only you could look inside buildings...
How do I turn off 3D?
I want overhead photos.

WAY better than the traditional 3D buildings. Even minor buildings like houses and stores are shown! But I think it would be cool if the Time Slider tool could affect buildings. Say, the Trump Tower in Chicago .If you travel back before it was built, the Trump Tower wouldn't be there anymore. And you could maybe add some sorta construction animation to it, I don't know. In my opinion the 3D imagery looks best in Tokyo.

It's not there anymore!!!!!! Why????

pleaseeeeeeeeeeee, how can I export it for Sketchup for example ???? tanks

When is this imagery going to be ready to use?

Google is fantastic!

lol I bet North Korea's as flat as a pancake though xD

This technology is amazing they could do so much with it once perfected like if they made a game using goole earth as the map

finally montreal is in 3d
que bueno que ya esta en mexioc

Lovely !

Love this video and the music, its so cheesy and cute
this is complete bull shit i have downloaded this crap multiple versions and NOT ONE 3D BUILDING EXISTS IN THE WHOLE THINS its just a flat blurry piece of shit FFS im going insaine here
