Is a "virtual" Philly even better than the real thing?
Well, GeoSim Systems
thinks so. Except for the aroma of freshly-grilled cheesesteak, at least. Their "Virtual Philadelphia" is the most detailed urban imaging system I've seen yet, and you can read about the monumental process of turning photographic images (taken from both aircraft and street-level) into this incredible rendering in a February 17 NY Times article
(reg req). And - as expected - Google wants to get in on the action and do the same thing
in San Francisco. via BB
