EveryScape: a realistic 3D view of streetscapes and public places
EveryScape is a new service set to launch this fall that presents a realistic 3D view of streetscapes and public places by putting together information from 2D photos.
EveryScape – Union Square (San Francisco)
EveryScape is the only place you can discover your everyday world, your way. Today, you can check out Union Square, San Francisco as the first city to be scaped. You can check out restaurants, hotels, go shopping, drive by homes. You can see what other people are saying and share your comments as you stroll down the street.
This is like Google Street View, but better (Interestingly enough, the map shown with the streetscapes is powered by Google…).
In the preview you can check the streetscape of Union Square (San Francisco) in AutoDrive, or by manually clicking the green arrow buttons. Additional information is available for notable buildings, object etc.
More cities are planned, starting with Boston, New York and Seattle.
