Updated Astronaut View Includes Raleigh

This may not be news to some but it was to me. Google Earth has updated its images and Raleigh looks very close to its present state. With this update, you can see practically every project that is currently under construction. The parking lot that will be taken over by The Hue still exists so we do know the images are a couple months old.

Of course, I’m only referring to the free version that is available and have no experience with the priced versions. Downtown Raleigh still has no 3D buildings in Google Earth. However, a majority of the buildings on NC State’s campus do. I’m curious to know how that worked out?

    None right now. Must be a new project.

  1. My understanding is that google offered an incentive to students to produce the renderings. It may have even been a large scale contest.
