Osama Bin Laden’s compound in 3D


A few days since Osama bin Laden was killed in Abbottabad, Pakistan, and already there are a variety of 3D models of his mansion available in the Google 3D Warehouse. Some are nice renderings, some use very realistic textures, and one is simply meant to be funny. However, all of them show that there are some very talented modelers out there, being able to produce models of this quality in such a short time frame.

Here are some of the best ones, in no particular order:

From J.A. Alvarez | details | KMZ


From Finnian | details | KMZ


From Aerilius | details | KMZ


From timmy | details | KMZ


From Mogens Bregnbaek | details | KMZ


I would assume that Google will post one of them as a default 3D model in Google Earth at some point.
