The Visualize Burlington 3D project is in association with the City of Burlington and Google Earth. The goal of the project is to create and model Burlington buildings in 3D and have them published on Google Earth. By the end of the project in Spring 2011, student had created over 400 building models to populate Burlington on Google Earth. The program used is Google SketchUp, a 3D modeling program designed for use with Google Earth. The highly architectural program makes it possible to model and customize the buildings with very accurate depictions of foundations, textures, and proportions.
