SketchUp’ed Acropolis in Google Earth

May 1st, 2006 by Ross Scaife

A couple of days ago I blogged that it would be useful to recreate ancient sites with SketchUp and make the results available within Google Earth.

Actually it turns out that the Athenian Acropolis (sans Erechtheion) is already available among the downloadable projects: Acropolis.kmz

But there are still plenty of other sites out there that need the treatment, and this one might be redone a bit differently…

For most informative effect one wants to see the models in Google Earth associated with richer textual documentation via the pop-up windows that allow text plus links to the web.
