London is now available in 3D on Google Maps

    You can now take a virtual tour of the UK capital. London is the fifth UK city now available in 3D on both Google Maps and Google Earth. The previous four locations in the UK, which became available in the 3D version, were Reading, Leeds, Birmingham and Stoke-on-Trent.

    As usual, the volumetric image can be enlarged, reduced, rotated, and other manipulations are performed.

    Earlier in the volumetric version, some tourist attractions were available, now the volumetric image is the entire city. So, if you wish, you can well explore London remotely, for example, before a business trip.

    Google started adding textures back in 2006, but only two years ago the company began adding a large number of 3D elements to its map services.
