Virtual Berlin

Whoa. Berlin has gone virtual. Germany's famed capital can now be viewed in stunning, user navigable 3-D on Google Earth through this link. You can even click your way through the Brandenburg Gate or wander into the Reichstag. Check it out. Now think of the possibilities. Virtual shops where real vendors are located, for example. This is some cool stuff. And the Berliners beat their cross-regional rivals in the City of Hamburg to the punch. I posted about the Hamburg project and their promise, now unfulfilled, to be the first 3-D metropolis on Google Earth almost a month ago. Props to Berlin.
