Google's 3D City Rollout Across Canada

Over the past several months Google has been rolling out new autogenerated 3D imagery across Canada. Large sections of metro Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Regina, Winnipeg, Oshawa/Ajax and Montréal have been released to date. The maps below show the boundaries of this new 3D coverage. Examine the skyline imagery of Vancouver and Montréal to see the fine detail.

Cube Cities can deploy its building visualization technology to any city using this new 3D imagery. The complete coverage of every building in these cities makes them come alive in Google Earth and enables very high quality city data visualization using the Cube Cities technology platform. 

Toronto, Ottawa, Quebec City and Halifax are the largest centres in Canada that have not yet been released in 3D. Subsequent releases have included Victoria, Peterborough and Greater Sudbury (week of July 21st) and Saskatoon (July 29th).
