Microsoft launches 3D building maker for Virtual Earth
The application lets you create 3D structures that can be placed on Virtual Earth maps or shared with other users. Virtual Earth 3DVIA is free to use, which makes sense, because users are essentially adding value to Microsoft's mapping services.
We highly recommend creating completely unrealistic models of your home and nearby buildings and uploading them so that Virtual Earth users will get the sense that you live in Rivendell and not Poughkeepsie. We're equal opportunity here at Download Squad, so we recommend the same activities for Google Sketchup users.
