Looking for new 3D cities to explore in far off places? Well, you’re in luck! We’ve been hard at work expanding our 3D coverage by adding ten of thousands of 3D buildings to these cities:

  • Berkeley, California USA
  • Cologne, Germany
  • The Hague, Netherlands

See the new buildings for yourself with the “3D Buildings” layer in Google Earthor by using Google Maps with Earth view.

Happy touring!

A royal view of the wedding procession, right in your browser

April 27, 2011
As we approach Friday and the marriage of Prince William and Catherine Middleton, many locations in central London are in the spotlight. Last month weexpanded our 3D imagery of central London’s buildings and trees in Google Earthto help you explore the royal wedding procession route.

As we get closer to the wedding day, we’ve also featured a few highlights along the procession route for you to explore in 3D using Google Maps with Earth View. If you have the Google Earth plug-in installed, you can get started viewing these spots though an immersive tour right away, or you can download the Google Earth plug-in to explore Google Maps in 3D.

With one click, you can travel to Buckingham Palace, fly to an aerial perspective of Westminster Abbey, or get a clock-level view of Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament. Get started seeing these and other highlights atmaps.google.com/royalwedding.

Houses of Parliament & Big Ben, London

Whatever way you’re celebrating on Friday, we hope this rich data of London in Google Earth and Google Maps brings you that little bit closer to this historic event.
