(Cross-posted on the Official SketchUp Blog)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 Earth or by using Google Maps with Earth view.

C)Building blocks 3D models detailed facades With tools like SketchUp and Building Maker, modelers around the world have been creating remarkably high-quality 3D buildings for Google Earth — just check out any of our Featured Modelers to see the impressive work they’ve been doing. We’ve also had local governments contributing models of their entire city – like Amherst, Massachusetts and Washington, DC – through our Cities in 3D program.

At Google, we’ve also been busy working on expanding our 3D coverage. Last week, we added detailed 3D models for Valencia, Spain. Many of these were Google-created models and before that, across the Atlantic, we released models in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and Indianapolis, Indiana. In addition to adding entirely new areas, we’ve been tinkering with ways to make richer, detailed 3D models. If you zoom into downtown Los Angeles, San Diego, San Francisco, Berkeley. Or Stockton you’ll now notice that our 3D coverage is now much more extensive and a lot more vibrant.

Berkeley, CA.

 

The buildings in these five California cities now have detailed facades. Meaning that you can see storefronts and architectural details like you would if you were walking down the street. We’ve constructed these models by using imagery from Street View, similar to the way that users can make photo-textured models in SketchUp 7.1.

With these models in Google Earth you can go in one swoop from viewing the globe through an astronaut’s eyes to virtually browsing the shops in San Francisco’s Chinatown or San Diego’s Gaslamp District.
Showing is always better than telling, especially for an interactive and vivid experience like this, so go explore the models in Google Earth. To kickstart your exploration, check out this video preview of what awaits you: earthtopomaps.com

F)It’s late summer and many U.S. cities have reported record (or almost record) heat. Are you withering in warmth and longing for some shade under a tree?. Maybe you can’t easily leave for your favorite park but trees are actually closer than you think! We’re happy to announce that we’ve added 3D trees to Google Earth in three new cities: Los Angeles, Denver and Boulder.Typically, when you imagine trees in Los Angeles, you picture the commanding palm trees that line the famous Hollywood avenues or dot the gracious mansions of Beverly Hills. While Palm Trees may dominate the landscape, there are actually many other trees both native and foreign that inhabit the city, such as the California Oak, Black Walnut trees, and California Sycamore (to name a few). 3d trees western united

G)You can now get a glimpse of these trees with the new 3D tree models covering the West Side, including cities like Santa Monica, Beverly Hills, and Hollywood, as well as parts of downtown where the financial district sits. Check out the famous Sunset Boulevard which stretches from the sea at Santa Monica to downtown. Here is where you will find Palm Trees lining glitzy movie posters and billboards that are a marquee signature of the city. 3d trees western united

H)There are two species you absolutely can’t forget when talking about trees in Colorado:.  3d trees western unitedColorado Blue Spruce and Quaking Aspen

I)Or jump to the see more native species like the native Oak tree species in Elylsian Park adjacent to Dodgers Stadium.

K)Elysian Park, Los Angeles It is also the Colorado state tree and a very common tree species seen in the Colorado Foothills.

There are two species you absolutely can’t forget when talking about trees in Colorado:.  Colorado Blue Spruce and Quaking Aspen. Both native to Colorado. Colorado Blue Spruce has a very distinct look for the pale blue of its needles. It is also the Colorado state tree and a very common tree species seen in the Colorado Foothills. Quaking Aspen got its name from fluttering leaves in the breeze. And makes up the famous golden fall foliage of Colorado. Take a walk on Cheeseman Park in Denver or a fly over Boulder and you can tell these trees by their unique colors and shapes.

M)There is one other tree species in Colorado deserving a special mention – Cottonwood trees in Boulder. Every late spring, these trees cover Boulder in white cottons. Making it feel like it’s still snowing in June (although that could happen in Colorado). There are several Cottonwoods right by the Google Boulder office that create white blankets of cotton in our garage. And on sidewalks every June and July. Looking at these 3D trees on Google Earth makes me feel like sneezing all of a sudden…
