Boulder in 3D (Google Earth 4)

by Osman Parvez
----

As some of you know, @Last's SketchUp (a Boulder startup) was purchased by Google last year. I've been playing around with SketchUp for a while now and the possibilities for using it seem endless. I've already designed a few dream homes. A friend of mine has even used it to play with "pop up" scenarios and modeled shadows to see how far he can expand without impacting his neighbors. Pretty cool.

It seems some of the features have been incorporated into Google Earth 4. A few creative types have done a great job of modeling Boulder in 3D. Now if you can't be here, you can still fly around Boulder in Google Earth.

Check it out!

  1. Well, well, well! I didn't know you were a user. (A SketchUp user, that is.) Have you downloaded version 6 yet? It really is a cool program, I have to admit it.
