Visit glorious Dresden via Google Earth

dresden-cathedral.jpgIf you’ve ever wanted to see how the rebuilding work is coming along in poor old blitzed Dresden, now you can – thanks to a free Google Earth representation of the city.

The data, which shows a staggering 150,000 Dresden buildings in high detail, is streamed into your Google Earth application from a remote server. This saves you the initial download time, although tech site TGDaily said it took them more than half an hour for a chunk of downtown Dresden to load up.

And the end result is not perfect – this image of the cathedral is clearly lacking textures. Although we’ve never been to Dresden to verify this fact. It could just be a very modernist design.
