Today, we added Dublin, Ireland and Cardiff, Wales to our collection of photo-textured 3D cities in Google Earth. With the '3D Buildings' layer in Google Earth turned on, you can now fly to these cities and explore everything from famous landmarks like Cardiff Castle, St. David's Hall, Aras An Uachtarain, and Custom House, to the quiet alleys of these historic cities. Cardiff and Dublin are comprised of primarily autogenerated models, but also include some user-created models as well. Have a look at this video for a look at the newest 3D cities in Google Earth.
Whether you're new to these cities, a native and feeling homesick, or anything in between, 3D cities in Google Earth enable you to visit locations on Earth no matter where you are. Enjoy!
