Canberra in the third dimension

By caf - 12 March 2013 4

The ABC is reporting that Canberra and Queanbeyan have become the first Australian cities to have been mapped out in 3D for Google Earth. Pretty neat – it’s worth having a shufty at a few of the more interesting sites around town. It seems to be a combination of metre-ish resolution radar height data and building plans for major structures.

(The Old Cotter Dam lives on… for now, at least!)

The cynical side of me wants to point out how most Rioters who wish to experience Canberra in 3D can simply go outside, but actually this is pretty damn cool. At least we might be able to draw some virtual overseas tourists to our fair city, if not physical ones.

There appears to be an odd structure hovering over the National Gallery carpark.
Reptoid warship perhaps!?

That really is most extremely cool. It’s easy to get blasé about this stuff, but wow!
