This is a discussion thread for the following file:

3D model tracks (http://www.gearthhacks.com/dlfile32022/3D-model-tracks.htm)

63 tracks displaying the most magnificent 3D models of buildings, structures, sometimes almost entire cities and surroundings present in the Google Earth 3D layer. This is a series of tracks (paths) designed to give you a tour, like a flyover of the local geography, in areas with many or particularly interesting or fascinating models.

Current cities and areas covered (chronological added here, in file alphabetically listed): "Buenos Aires, Argentina" - "Beijing, China" - "Florence, Italy" - "Cape Town, South Africa" - "Venice, Italy" - "Abu Dhabi, UAE" - "Melbourne, Australia" - "Vienna, Austria" - "Madrid, Spain" - "Amsterdam, Netherlands" - "Stockholm, Sweden" - "Warsaw, Poland" - "Lima, Peru" - "Marseilles, France" - "Bangkok, Thailand" - "Copenhagen, Denmark" - "Kyoto, Japan" - "Osaka, Japan" - "Kobe, Japan" - "Astana, Kazakhstan" - "Munich, Germany" - "Washington D.C., USA" - "Mexico City, Mexico" - "Angkor, Cambodia (Angkor Wat temple)" - "Guangzhou (Canton), China" - "Jakarta, Indonesia" - "Miami, USA" - "Lucerne, Switzerland" - "Pisa, Italy (Leaning Tower of Pisa)" - "Christchurch, New Zealand" - "Chichen Itza, Yucatán, Mexico" - "Prague, Czech Republic" - "Potala Palace, Lhasa, Tibet" - "Macau, China" - "Antwerp, Belgium" - "Hong Kong, China" - "Cairo/Giza, Egypt" - "Istanbul, Turkey" - "Valparaiso, Chile" - "Tokyo, Japan" - "Auckland, New Zealand" - "Seoul, South Korea" - "Las Vegas, USA" - "Shanghai, China" - "Barcelona, Spain" - "Los Angeles, USA" - "Taj Mahal, Agra, India" - "Athens, Greece" - "Taipei, Taiwan" - "Paris, France" - "Toronto, Canada" - "Moscow, Russia" - "Dubai, UAE" - "Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia" - "Chicago, USA" - "Berlin, Germany" - "Singapore" - "Rio de Janeiro, Brazil" - "Rome, Italy" - "London, England" - "Sydney, Australia" - "San Francisco, USA" - "New York, USA".

Choose the folder of the (city) area you would like to see, then (double) click to zoom in and give you an overview of the area of your choice. Start by clicking the green 3D placemark of the specific area. This will zoom you further into the area and GE will started to cache the buildings. Now mark the 3-dotted icon track (path) below the green 3D placemark and click on the 'Play tour' icon. Time has been spent to give you an easy and smooth view of great 3D buildings and structures which have been created and incorporated in the '3D building' layer of Google Earth. Be aware that 3D objects in GE may have a delay of display. Consider to take the actual path track several times or pause/rewind it, to allow all of the 3D objects and the rest of GE data to be cached and loaded to display. A placemark for each track has been supplied with a view to support best caching of 3D objects in the area. Clicking on the track itself will provide a view to hopefully cache (most of) the "other" part of the path / track.

Take this/those track(s) as an inspiration to look further into the area. Recommended to be viewed as a 'Play tour' in Google Earth with the '3D buildings' and terrain layer enabled and a viewing angle above 80 degrees. To adjust viewing angle, choose menu 'Tools', 'Options', Click the tab 'Touring' and change the 'Camera Tilt Angle' to above 80 degrees. The default is 60 degrees. To play a specific path track, mark the 'three dot icon' path track, press the 'Play tour' option and enjoy the flyover of the area.

After several hours of touring, creating the tracks (paths) in this collection, detecting 3D models, in many corners and areas of Google Earth, I dedicate, these current and most likely ever evolving tracks, as a tribute to all those who contributed and continue to do so, to the 3D models in the GE layer. These tracks can only give a quick and superficial picture, and never a sufficiently covered view, of the hard and dedicated work provided through the construction, design, research and model making of buildings or structures, large or small, outlined or detailed. Thank you all, you model builders!

And note that this tour is an excellent test (present and back in 2009 and most likely ever forward!) of your computer systems capabilities in graphics performance and a test of your network speed. During creating all these tracks/paths we never since 2009 has managed to cache all 3D in best quality in first go, so consider to take a second and third go (track/path re-play/playback) of each track to get optimal and best display. In 2009 when most of these tracks/paths where originally lined out, only few areas of 3D buildings where online. With new 3D versions of buildings and structures combined with more coverage, these tracks/paths always will pose a challenge to your displaying unit, mobile, tablet or computer. In 2009 we had not enough power on a 2GHz/2Gbyte computer, 4Mbit connection, in 2013 we have not enough power in 4GHz/4Gbyte computer, 22Mbit connection, to display all Google Earth content on a first time display on a 'play tour/track'. So "Play it again, Sam" :) - Of course the Google Earth servers could contribute to network degregation. But play'ing this tour on maximum 'Terrain Quality', fullscreen (F11) and all additional layes enabled should/will give YOUR system something do, and YOU something to view :-) - And let's hope the Google Earth team over time will keep on to supply us with even more hi-resolution pictures and imagery all the way... :-)

Really sorry about the late file approval! I completely forgot about approving files, and then I kept having problems with the website no longer loading.

Regardless, this is a GREAT file. I absolutely love it, and it's a great way to introduce Google Earth to beginners. I now have it saved in my places, something I rarely do with files these days.

Thank you and could you, by the way, update the description, both in this discussion thread, here above, and on the file page (http://www.gearthhacks.com/dlfile32022/3D-model-tracks.htm) with this (http://www.gearthhacks.com/forums/showthread.php?t=13836), where a spelling error is corrected. :yep:. Areas covered is by the way expanded since the first submission :cowboy:.

Thanks

Thank you, Appletom, very very much. This must be a special service of this forum to offer spontaneous spelling check of contributions. This is great, as a "second hand (language) english" writer, I truely appreciate anyone that point out any misspelling or wording which might confuse the intent of any contribution (thread or file) I may bring.

Now I just have to figure out which two words it was... :D

It's a special service only available for wormhole travelers.

If I recall, choice was spelled choise and smooth was spelled smoothe.

And dearly appreciated since wormhole traveling and discussion of it is almost a fulltime job :yep:


If I recall, choice was spelled choise and smooth was spelled smoothe.

This I got to remember; not to make my choise smoothe but to do my smooth choice. Thanks! :givebeer:

It's a special service only available for wormhole travelers.

How does one go about applying? Can it be done online, or must I do it the old-fashioned way using a <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paper" target=new>tree product</a>? Do I get a discount if I'm a Certified Microsoft Wormhole Specialist?


If I recall, choice was spelled choise and smooth was spelled smoothe.

Well, nothing wrong really with spelling it "smoothe", it just means smooth with an extra kick in a suavé sort of way.

Do I get a discount if I'm a Certified Microsoft Wormhole Specialist?Absolutely. Please post a copy of your certification here in this thread.

Do you prefer a particular breed of tree?


Absolutely. Please post a copy of your certification here in this thread.

Due to the enormous amount of HTML code involved, I have posted it on my own site. You can find it <a href="http://geocities.com/avrilismymom/wormhole.html" target=new>here</a>.

Preferably something on the endangered list from deep in the Amazon Rain Forest.


Due to the enormous amount of HTML code involved, I have posted it on my own site. You can find it <a href="http://geocities.com/avrilismymom/wormhole.html" target=new>here</a>.That will do for now, but at some point we will need to see a copy with the MSWHU logo on it.

Would you like me to bring back any souvenirs? I was thinking of bringing back a few pirahna for my fishtank/swimming pool/jacuzzi...


That will do for now, but at some point we will need to see a copy with the MSWHU logo on it.

Now why wouldn't my degree have the school symbol on it? Unless they were scamming the whole time..... :(

After touring for a (few) weeks I feel like saying thanks to the model builders in GE that made this tour and tracks possible.

Could you, a moderator, (again) update the description, both in this discussion thread, here above, and on the file page (http://www.gearthhacks.com/dlfile32022/3D-model-tracks.htm) with this (http://www.gearthhacks.com/forums/showthread.php?t=13836).

I hope any spelling errors "automatically" is corrected. :D or pm'ed, before update ;)

Thank you, Sladys. Since SpiderX22 (in good intention) intially created the discussion thread, I can not update it. So this description also would be nice to be updated. Thanks.


...fixes my internet connection. It has been too slow to upload this file so I can see it. :slant:

I really hope you get your connection up and running. This tour is a hard test for anyones graphics card, cpu and internet connection, no matter what transfer rate you have. So give it time :yep:

I've "watched" New York, San Francisco, Las Vegas and Rio de Janeiro

NY: I love the very beginning, and the flyover in the 5th Ave, squeezed between the HUGE skyscrappers, but the path would be better if it visited Liberty Island just once (at the end)

SF: Good too. I'd add Lombard street (going up the hill maybe?)

LV: Looks like the first shots of some CSI episodes. Great.

RJ: Being a Carioca myself, I just *LOVED* it. You showed the best of the city. I was amazed by the bridge sequence, and finishing it at Cristo Redentor showing off Sugarloaf Mountain was just wonderful.

I still have to check out the other cities.

Corrected, could'nt resist to add a detour to Times Square :yep:


SF: Good too. I'd add Lombard street (going up the hill maybe?)

Done :yep:


LV: Looks like the first shots of some CSI episodes. Great.

Let the data load and enjoy a free ride without spending chips!

Thank you! Currently I have only physical visited 4 of this currently 23 tracks/towns of this tour. It warms my heart that a residents of one of the cities (One of those I have not yet physically visited, hopefully I will) express that my simple contribution looking into areas of GE are o.k. and are regarded as a fair "flyover" of the area. :yep:
