Convergence between Google Earth and Maps continues: Highest zoom levels in Google Maps for 38 US cities now sport 2.5D buildings, repurposed from Google Earth’s default 3D layer, like so:


It’s not Microsoft’s Bird’s Eye view, but those sides of buildings are looking quite clickable, don’t you think, should Google ever come out with street-level content?

One thought on “Google Maps repurposes Google Earth’s 3D content”

  1. I think that pretty cool. I wonder if you will be able to move around in 3D one day. street level would be cool. I for one am very excited about it.

    what will the future bring, only good stuff I hope.
