Google Maps + 3D Landmarks

Google Maps Update
  • Google recently released updates to the 3D buildings that can be viewed in Google Maps Streetview. Now you can see some famous landmarks, like the Eiffel Tower and the White House, as 3D models in Google Maps. 
  • They also released new street view imagery for the Amazon. Now you can go on a virtual street view tour of the Amazon. Some of the imagery is absolutely stunning. 
  • A YouTube video introduction is available here

The new imagery and 3D buildings could be a fantastic way for your students to explore all kinds of famous and interesting places around the globe. All information from this post was gathered from the TCEA TechNotes publication.
