Great Pyramid of Giza in 3D

Great Pyramid of Giza in Google EarthThe Great Pyramid of Giza, one of the seven wonders of the world, can be seen in the satellite photos of Google Earth. But, it is just a 2D photo on a hill of terrain, not the actual structure. Yesterday, someone called 'atf' at the Google Earth Community posted an excellent 3D model of the Great Pyramid which also shows the interior chambers by making the walls of the pyramid transparent. Once you load the model, you need to turn off the "Terrain Layer" to see the full model. He has provided a number of camera views - look at the "Views" folder and then double click on the various views. This lets you get a close look at the entrance, Queen's chamber, the King's chamber, etc.

Two weeks ago I posted an article about the tomb of King Tut which also used similar 3D techniques. I expect many other interesting archaelogical sites will be created for visualization like this.

    Steven, I don't believe the author ('atf' at the GEC) has published his SketchUp file. You could try sending him a private message from the GEC by following the link to his post in the blog entry.
