Living in an imaginary World is not so far when you have Google who are creating a Virtual World for you. I recently noticed many cities are made up in 3D view which was not there a 6 months ago. Google first acquired the virtual globe program from the Keyhole Inc. in 2004 which formerly now known as “Google Earth”. Google Earth works in Keyhole Markup language the one in which it was formerly developed. Actually the 2D images of the earth are the pictures captured by the satellites launched by NASA. Later in 2007, out of Google’s Interest they used Sketchup, a 3-D modelling program to construct 3D buildings and structures. They added added a new feature called Google Sky and they are nothing but the telescopic pictures provided by the Space Institute at Baltimore. In June 2008,they completed the Disneyland in the 3D view and it is incorporated in the Google Earth 4.2. In Google Earth 4.3[Download],they launched with integrated Street View which provides 360° panoramic street-level views and allows users to view parts of selected cities and their surrounding metropolitan areas at ground level.
