Amsterdam is 3D in Google Earth



Amsterdam is the first city that is available in Google Earth in a full 3d view . All the buildings are in 3d format and are represented in the form of gray blocks .

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,” the publication reported.

To view the city all you have to do is download this file and open it with Google Earth .
