Google Earth 4.3 3D Model 已看得到更詳細的建築物材質

在新的 Google Earth 4.3 版本裡,使用者將有更好導覽操控系統,並且透過 Layer 的設定將可以看到更詳盡、更快的 3D 建築,這些從 3d warehouse 精挑細選出的建築物還有圖像貼圖,讓你可以更加體驗到建築物原本所使用的材質與構成的景觀(像上面那張圖),城市的天際線(Skyline)也因此更加明顯有層次,讓使用者可以從不同的角度觀察到城市的紋理,而下載 3D 模型的速度也比以往更快,詳細的特色如下:
New navigation - We've improved the zoom control so you can swoop down from outer space to street level in a single seamless motion. And with the addition of the "look" joystick, you can look up at buildings or across a mountain range.
More, faster 3D buildings - It's more fun to navigate through a lot of new 3D content. Besides adding thousands of buildings contributed by people around the world, we've added dozens of photo-textured cities and towns in the U.S. and elsewhere.
Street View - The popular Google Maps feature makes its Google Earth debut.
Sunlight feature - Never seen the sunrise over the Alps? Now you can.
New languages - There are 12 new languages, including Danish, English (UK), Spanish (Latin American), Finnish, Hebrew, Indonesian, Norwegian, Portuguese (PT), Romanian, Swedish, Thai, and Turkish.

在左方勾選 Photorealistic 選項就可以看到建築物的圖像紋理,不過並不是所有建築物都有,官方範例是 Google 總部附近的區域嗎?
