Short news: SketchUp models & time, RoboGeo 5.0

  • If you’re wondering if you can attach SketchUp models to the new Google Earth timeline, the answer is Yes, as this proof of concept shows: An imaginative recreation of the evolution of a building complex in Ur. Plenty for historians and educators to play with here. I can’t wait to see historical battles played out on Google Earth.
  • The fully featured photo georeferencing tool RoboGeo v5.0 beta is out. Version 5 adds the ability to georeference photographs using Google Earth, just like in Google Picasa. The demo is free.
