London in Google Earth

London in Google Earth. The concept of re-creating real world places in virtual worlds has proved to be a popular way of encouraging and harvesting communities in Second Life.

Although Google Earth isn’t a virtual world (yet) there’s already a high number of buildings available to view in 3D. The Google 3D warehouse is a repository of cities (and other items/objects) across the world starting to be modeled and available in Google Earth.

Here’s some shots using the Canary Wharf area of London as an example.
