Google Earth To Create 3D Cities For Mobile Devices [video]

Using new technology, Google Earth presents 45 degree aerial imagery for mobile map devices that builds on expansive ideas they’ve used since 2006.

By the end of the year, Google aims to have 3D coverage for metropolitan areas with a combined population of 300 million people.
