The Best of Google Earth In 3-D

The Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco, California

My latest cyberculture infatuation is with Google Earth.

This follows time I spent playing with jacksonpollock.org, Etch A Sketch and Wordles. As well as creating renderings and lithographs. What they all have in common, of course, is an opportunity for artistic expression.

Exploring the world on Google Earth is fun, but you can't always see the things you want rendered in 3-D. In that vein, Google Earth is similar to life, at least sometimes, in that you have to do the best you can with what's available.

What would qualify as the Best of Google Earth in 3-D is debatable, of course, and I suspect would vary widely depending upon individual points of view. Fortunately, the only POV I have to take into consideration in assembling such a collection is my own.
