George IV Bridge Edinburgh

January 16, 2010


One quiet night at work years ago I set about learning how to make 3D models for use in Google Earth. My first real stab and I got a blue ribbon and now the building is a part of a virtual Edinburgh. There are a number of problems modeling Edinburgh in GE – namely that the topography in GE is very loose and the old town is stacked with two levels of streets – Think Judge Dread city who’s name I can’t remember or be arsed to google… comments welcome… Is it Mega City One? Anyway without having a way of scooping out terrain its going to be impossible to make the Galleries on the mound and accurately describe the relationship between North, South and George IV Bridges and the Cow Gate.
