Service Google Street View (Street View) in some way, "paved the way" to run Google Maps in 3D.Google Street View function allows you to watch the panorama streets of many cities in the world with a height of approximately 2.5 meters and "roam" on the three-dimensional projection of the city streets.
In this mode, you can see the most famous places in the world.Among them, for example, the Amazon jungle, the Great Barrier Reef in Australia, the White House in Washington, the Mariana Trench in the Pacific Ocean, the historic narrow-gauge railway in the Alps.Affordable and easy streets of many cities, including Russian.However available for viewing is usually not the whole city , and some of its streets.
Google Maps in 3D called to fix it - by
three-dimensional effect is achieved through aerial settlements from different angles using a "specially trained" aircraft.After the procedure, comparison and processing of aerial photographs will complete three-dimensional model of cities - both buildings and terrain .Browse objects can be on all sides, virtually "walk" around the city - or rather, the city (users will be available to view from above at an angle of 45 degrees).
Now Google Maps in 3D three-dimensional models offer major metropolises of America, Europe and Asia .According to the promises of Google, at the end of 2012 when the three-dimensional model of Google Maps are all more or less large cities in the world whose population is more than a total of three hundred million people (though specific cities and regions, which will be available in the mode of 3D, whilenot called).
Representatives of Google claim that their main goal was to create three-dimensional maps of the service in Google - provide all users with Google Maps the opportunity to see the world from a bird's eye .Probably each of us once in my life wanted to fly over the city streets, and Google Maps in 3D will help to fulfill the eternal dream - at least virtually.
Another innovation from the company Google - Street View Trekker .Special camera backpack takes photographs with a viewing angle of 360 degrees, so in Street View mode, you can even see the regions where it is impossible to get transport.Camera Street View Trekker will wear behind the pedestrian, able to go to difficult for motorists and cyclists place.
The Google plan in such a way to take pictures of, for example, a number of national parks in the United States, the Grand Canyon and several ski resorts.The main thing - to figure out how to minimize the effect of vibration when driving a person to get better pictures.
