Paris in 3D

The Eiffel Tower is one of the most popular sights in Google Earth, and it’s had a high-quality 3D model for a few years now. However, the rest of the city has been rather flat — until now.

Google has rolled out extensive 3D building coverage for the city and it looks great! (NOTE from Frank: There are some areas – especially around the Eiffel Tower, where the building models look half-finished. Many of the sides are missing photo-realistic textures. But, hopefully this will inspire people to use Building Maker to finish the models.]


Check out some of the cool sites like the Eiffel Tower, the Notre Dame Cathedral or the the Arc de Triomphe.
