    This is absolutely barking.

    Its still pre-beta, so only has a few collections on there for demo purposes - but soon it will go live and you can drop your own collections on, and view them in 3D.

    As well as the standard collections, there is also a NASA sponsored one HERE
    which is excellent.

    Warning - needs a fairly decent PC, all you lot with onboard graphics and very little RAM, don't bother
     
  2. Onboard graphics with 1mb RAM, it still runs but barely.

    Looks extremely impressive!
     
  3. the nasa thing looks great. Who sould we upload so we can take 'odd' pictures of them?

    Ski.
     
  4. Saw them doing a demo of this (Vids floating around the internet somewhere) well impressive, it will use images on google earth amongst other things to make the 3d environment. Will see if I can find it.
     
  5. That was easy here
     
  6. That's awesome, especially the part about having it tie into some sort of worldwise database of photographs.
     
  7. Yep, awesome.

    Makes Google Earth look shabby.

    A "How we built britain" collection from the BBC is on there as well.

    Scottish Parliament Building

    Absolute madness, the potential for this is mind-blowing.

    LOL - check out Trafalgar square. One of the photo's is an old black and white one, that must have been took 40-odd years ago!!!

    But its still been captured accurately, in exactly the right place. Unbeleivable.
