3D trees were first launched in Google Earth 6 last November, today, Google announced the latest group of cities with 3D trees include: New York, Philadelphia, Boston, London and multiple cities in the California Bay Area.
“This new 3D imagery brings new perspective to your favorite historical buildings and parks. In Philadelphia we’ve complemented the Independence Hall model with new 3D trees in Independence National Historic Park to enhance the realism of the historic site. Other examples are Delacorte Theater in New York City and the the famous Emerald Necklace, a gem of Boston designed by Frederick Law Olmsted, a shared experience and memory for many people — locals and visitors alike,” Google stated.
