Google has just launched a new program called Building Maker. Think of it as Google Sketchup Lite. It's an easy way to create 3D images for Google Earth.
Building Maker is launching for 50 cities on Google Earth, but plans to add more. It's browser-based and can be used in Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer and Safari. Building Maker is free and available in 14 languages.
Models submitted will be examined by Google before appearing on Google Earth. Google says it will choose the best model for each building.
The best way to learn about Building Maker is the video below. It really shows you just how easy Google has made it to create 3D models.
