  1. Couldn’t resist letting you know about the content I posted yesterday. After checking out new images of Vancouver, scroll east to Burnaby and check out the 3D campus of Simon Fraser University. This model was completed before photo texturing and proper geo-location was possible with Sketchup, prior to the announcement of the 3D campus contest by Google.

  2. Here is the link, be sure to check out the virtual tour. The blue semi transparent buildings are currnetly under development. I have also take several air photos of the construction called UniverCity.

  3. Why don’t they update thing outside US and Europe. At least, the frequency with which these two regions is far greater than for the rest of the world. :(

  4. “Las Palmas (Canary Islands) Spain” is wrong.

    The Island is named “La Palma”. Las Palmas is the name of the biggest town on “Gran Canaria (Canary Islands) Spain”
