Has anyone checked out Google earth recently?  It literally blows my mind.  Three weeks after my old computer died taking maps for several proposed mods with it i find myself in COVID 19 lockdown for a proposed 4 weeks and am getting bored.  So I've started negotiating a new mod.  With the loss of several gigs of textures, maps images and so on I thought I'd start again from scratch.  Downloaded the new version of Google Earth to the new computer and started helping myself to imagery.

I see that many European cities have been 3-Derized.  Not only has each and every building been 3d rendered but if you zoom in whole cityscapes have been rendered in 3D.

Mind
fucking
blown.      

I can't even consider the computer power that drives this free product let alone think of any way that they've created this.

I'm reminded of a quote by the late Aurther C. Clarke "Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic."   We're there!

I use either Google Maps, Earth or Streetview pretty much every week now as part of my job and for internet rabbit holes I go down. 3D views has been around for quite awhile, maybe over 10 years?

Ok odd, I had strictly photographic images on the old version/old computer

Just for clarity this

Yeah so some places I used to browse did not have 3D for years. I think they did the dense and highly populated areas first, like NYC, and branched out to smaller less populated areas afterwards.

So we're in nation-wide lock down

I've been pilfering images off Google Earth for map making.

Made one huge .psd that I can magic wand buildings off while mapping
