Sunday tidbits

  • discovers a giant iPod visible from space. Naturally, it is to be found in Australia.
  • Here come the SketchUp models. Okay, so it’s on an architecture student’s project blog, rather than by complete amateurs like me or you, but I think it’s a great semi-detached house. It’s a pity that the KML version is not online, and the author, Michael Drewe, is difficult to get hold of.

  • KisMAC is a wifi stumbler for the Mac (useful for wardriving). The latest version now exports to Google Earth.
  • ZNO blog has two models of the Tower of Pisa — leaning for the realists and vertical for the idealists.
  • Lee Rickler’s digilondon is a sightseeing site just for London.
  • Last but certainly not least, Brian Flood has a great walk-through of how exactly Arc2Earth can get data from ESRI’s ArcGIS into Google Earth. It looks both intuitive and powerful, which is a hard combination to pull off.

  1. Hi there,

    Just saw my sketchup model of my house on your site.

    Thanks for the complement.

    This was just a preliminary design, that has since been remodelled. It was for a project to design a semi in a nearby neighbourhood in Johannesburg.

    To show my complete ignorance, what is KML?

    If you would like to get hold of me or have any questions please email me:

    Thanks again.


    PS This was quite a surprise to find my quick sketchup designs on your site! Maybe you can let me know your reasons for putting it there?
