3D model of Birmingham in Google Earth

The Google Earth blog reported last week that more UK 3D cities had been added such as Cardiff and Dublin. It seems now Birmingham also joins them, seen on the movie below.

The results are very impressive with some very good texturing work and it is fascinating to see more and more 3D urban models of major UK cities added to the list. It of course remains to be seen exactly how these models will be used and whether any additional functionality can/will be added to them in order to make them more interactive and not just a navigational fly-through environment.
