Google Introduces Building Maker To Google Earth

You might have seen on Google Earth, that there are lots of amazing 3D buildings around the globe. Are you wondering how those superb buildings and sky scrapers are made? Then Google answered you today.

Google has launched a new plug-in for Google Earth called Google Building maker. With this new tool released by Google, you can create your own buildings and submit them to the Google team. Google team reviews them and   your building will be published on Google Earth.

Building Maker is a 3D modeling tool for adding buildings to Google Earth. It is easy and fun to use the tool. Here is how it works,

  • You should select a city from around the world.
  • Google provides you some photos. You have to start creating buildings with those.
  • After completing, save it and Google will review it.
  • That’s it! Your building is on Google Earth! Simple, isn’t it?

Details On Resources That Google Gives For Creating Buildings

Basically, Google gives you some well designed 3D models and aerial view photos of some buildings. You need to use these resources to create new buildings. Google will be introducing about 50 cities at the beginning and will later go on increasing the number.

Models you create will be saved live in the Google 3D Warehouse, an online repository for 3D models
