Virtual Earth video showcasing the latest and most incredible city, New York. With over 19,000 buildings in Manhattan, Queens and "da" Bronx/Yonkers - this fly through illustrates what is likely the largest single truly accurate 3D city ever created for public consumption. Music by the master - Frank Sinatra.
Simple example of using Virtual Earth to attach video to news stories about real estate.
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to fly over your favorite city, mountains or valleys? Well, I got ahold of a flight simulator interface for Microsoft Virtual Earth, and this is what it looks like.
This is a short demo showing the power of stitching live video footage into a simulated 3D world based on Virtual Earth...expect to see more integration between the real world and digital worlds in the months to come...
This test puts Google Earth and Microsoft Virtual Earth through their paces in Denver - one of the cities modeled in both systems. These are incredible applications that are bridging the gap between the real and virtual worlds, and we're just at the beginning of the game...enjoy!
This is a city by city comparison of 3D buildings in both Google Earth and Virtual Earth in slideshow format.
An example video with narrative describing a transtion from Virtual Earth into an indoor area using Photosynth to explore an art gallery. Try it if you haven't used these programs before - they're awesome!
this is a short demo clip of a tutorial i created on the MSR MapCruncher application. MapCruncher allows you to overlay and register any type of image on top of a Virtual Earth background - in this case, I took a wikipedia map of the Darfur region and overlayed it in MapCruncher to generate the tiles so you can see the finished result on the web. it's really fun and easy!
Another cool demo showing the Microsoft Research photo stitching capability to zoom and pan around the entire city of San Francisco taken at an oblique angle from the air...awesome!
This is a demo video using two new technologies - Virtual Earth and Photosynth from Microsoft - to zoom in on an area of earth and potentially transition into a photo montage of the area of interest. This one is of St Peter's Basilica in Rome. Pretty cool stuff.
This is a cool application utilizing 3D world software like MS Virtual Earth, and including live video camera feeds. This file was created by USC.
