Entire City of Amsterdam Gets 3D "Gray" Buildings in Google Earth
Google has just released 3D buildings for the entire city of Amsterdam in the Netherlands. To see them, fly to Amsterdam , then turn on the "3D Buildings->Other buildings" layer in Google Earth. The building models are those simple, gray colored, type of models that give you an idea of the size and dimensions of buildings. Just like the 3D buildings that Google Earth first released almost two years ago for 35 US cities, and then later for most of Japan. These buildings will undoubtedly be used for the 2.5D views shown for Google Maps to provide an feel for buildings in major cities. They haven't pushed the ones for Amsterdam into Google Maps yet though. If you turn on the rest of the 3D Buildings layer, there are some new buildings for Amsterdam modeled with better quality as well.
I guess its appropriate to give Amsterdam some special attention. After all, according to reports, half of all Dutch people use Google Earth!
Thanks to GEB reader Erik for the tip on Amsterdam. He was the first to report on this interesting new find. I'm sure there are other updates to the layers, but I'll report on what they are in a later post. In the meantime, if anyone finds other cities which now have 3D buildings like this, please post a comment. I've already checked a dozen or so European cities, but this is the only one I've found.
