3D Model of Philly is Better Than Google Earth

New, 1 comment

Not to hate on Google, but this 3D virtual model of Philadelphia totally beats Google Earth out of the water when it comes to exploring the historic city's streets. This fully textured, geographically accurate model was designed by Australian firm AEROmetrex in order to aid ESM Productions in arranging and coordinating the papal event on the Ben Franklin Parkway. According to Philly Mag, some of the sites you can discover in this video include the Philadelphia Museum of Art, City Hall, and the mosaic/mural Legacy on the 700 block of Chestnut Street. See if you can spot any other Philly landmarks by checking out the above video.
