MS Virtual Earth does an amazing job of rendering 3D buildings
When you get a moment, check out the new stuff at Virtual Earth. I'm listened to a presentation yesterday on their SDKand the 3D rendering they do on details like buildings and such. Verycool stuff. There will apparently be a new version 4 of their SDK realsoon now that further enables the ability to embed their stuff in webpages. Of course to see the stuff in 3D you need to install theirruntime (same as with Google Earth) and run it in IE (sigh), howeverthe presenter just said they'd be supporting 3D rendering in Firefox in the near future.
But what I really want to know is Why Oh Why is this stuff not included in the new version of Flight Simulator???
Thanks for reading,
