G)Our quest to create the most comprehensive and accurate map of the world is ongoing, but we’re happy to take a pause and share some impressive progress that our Google Maps and Earth imagery teams have recently made. We’ve refreshed the high resolution aerial and satellite imagery for many places around the world, and released some new 45 degree imagery as well.New 45° imagery available for 51 cities:

H)In addition, 45° imagery is now available in Google Maps for 37 U.S. and 14 international locations. Below are some examples of the beautiful new views from Pisa, Italy and Winnipeg, Canada.

I)Probably one of the most famous landmarks in the world is the Leaning Tower of Pisa. Its construction started back in 1173 and extended over a period of almost 350 years. Due to increasing incline during the last Century, a stabilization effort was performed that took almost two decades to complete. Today the tower is said to be safe from collapsing for at least 200 more years.

[Cross-posted from the Google SketchUp BlogExplore Ancient Modern Rome in 3D
Rome really is an eternal city. With a history spanning over 2500 years and regimes from the early kingdom, through the republic, the empire, and later as the heart of the Catholic faith in the Vatican city, each has made their mark on the current urban architectural landscape of Rome. Now, with the release of thousands of new 3D buildings for the city, you can explore the blending of the ages in layered construction of Rome from within Google Earth.
Let’s start our exploration in the ruins of the ancient Roman forum, home of the original Roman republic. From here we can easily travel to some of the subsequent Imperial buildings such as the. Colosseum (AKA the Flavian Amphitheater) and Trajan’s Market and Column.

Looking towards the Colosseum through the Roman Forum
Next, we’ll head Northwest, towards the Pantheon. And Piazza Navona. The Pantheon is a great example of the layered reuse of buildings in Rome; originally built in the Republican period, the Pantheon was retrofitted with the front portico in the Imperial period. And then later converted into a church. The shape of. Piazza Navona also displays its historic foundation as the site was originally the Stadium of Domitian in the Imperial era.

Lastly, let’s head over to the Vatican City. Where we can see great examples of the Renaissance and Baroque architecture of the city in. Saint Peter’s Basilica and the colonnade by Bernini around St. Peter’s square.

There is much more to explore in Italy’s modern capital. So have a look around this beautiful city! And don’t forget. A few years ago we also released ancient Rome in 3D which allows you to see. Rome as it was in 320 AD.To see Rome in  for yourself, use. Google Maps with Earth view or turn on. Google Earth’s “3D Buildings” layer and search for “Rome, Italy”. Alternatively, you can download this KML tour from the. Google Earth Gallery to take a virtual tour of the 3D landmarks for yourself. As always, feel free to use. Google Building Maker or Google SketchUp to make any improvements or additions to the city. Or to model your own town.

Happy touring!

View College Basketball. You may wonder why I’ve kept this up for three years well, aside from the fundamental fact that I’m a college hoops nut. Where all of you basketball fans can find additional Google tools to help you track the tournament. I just so happen to also love seeing the geo-spatial distribution of the teams. The research and compliation of the information led me to several interesting facts you can see for yourself in the layer and then use to wow your friends, such as:.Today, the wonderful chaos that is March Madness returns, and with it, comes abrand new college basketball KML like the one I built last year. view college basketballC)View College Basketball Shooting for three: Keeping up with the Madness

This may have caused a bit of personal March madness – a lot of long nights. And triple-checking each arena placemark – but I hope you’ll enjoy the result.

Each entry in the field of 65 is color coded by region and the game sites have a special basketball icon this year.Also, teaming up with a few other March Madness enthusiasts, we’ve created a page,google.com/collegebasketball2010.

Mapping the Madness returns

H)Today, the wonderful chaos that is March Madness returns, and with it, comes abrand new college basketball KML like the one I built last year. To celebrate this annual moment of basketball bliss. I’ve added the locations of this year’s 13 tournament venues. In addition to the locations of the 65 tournament teams’ campuses.Why, you might ask, did I decide to burn the midnight oil again to map these locations? Because I’m a a die-hard college hoops nut, plain and simple. As you’re watching the games over the next few weeks, take a minute during a break in the action to do some March Madness geo-browsing and see if you can find these spots in Google Earth:

  • A tournament venue with an airplane silhouette on top of it
  • The tournament team based in Moon Township, PA
  • The two tournament teams that play in arenas that have their school logos on the roofs

I’ve also included these placemarks on a My Map – check it out:
