Google to map Royal wedding route in 3D!
Google has expanded its 3D imagery available via Google Earth to cover the royal wedding procession.
London: Just because you haven’t been invited to the wedding doesn’t mean you can’t get a fantastic view of it.
Because Google has expanded its 3D imagery available via Google Earth to cover the entire royal wedding procession.
Starting at Westminster Abbey, the 3D route then takes in the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben, Number 10 Downing Street, Horse Guards Parade, the Royal Mall (with 3D trees lining the route), before finally reaching Buckingham Palace.
To see all the landmarks and greenery in Google Earth, tick the ``3D buildings box`` in the left-hand panel under “Layers,” then type “London” into the search bar on the top left and use the navigation controls on the upper right to zoom in, spin around and tilt the view. Or users can access the shot via visiting ‘Earth View’ on Google Maps in the browser.
“We’ve also turned St James`` Park, Green Park and Hyde Park into a 3D lush green carpet, thanks to the help of our friends at the Royal Parks. We’ve modelled five different species of trees, and virtually planted more than 12,000 individual trees,” the Telegraph quoted Phil Verney, program manager, Google Earth and Maps, as saying.
