I. Modeling for a Map
Modeling for Google Earth can be challenging because it isquite different than 3D modeling for architecturalprojects or to achieve professionally rendered scenes.
Since Google Earth is an online, interactive, 3D program,models must be optimized for fast download and for goodcomputer performance.
Also, since the goal is to view afull city worth of models at a time, models mustcoincide with the big picture, and therefore portray onlyenough detail.Keys to Success
Don’t model all the Details
Represent only the Important Aspects
Let texture images show most of the details
Small files are Crucial
Make it Beautiful
Maintain Accuracy in Scale and LocationBottom Line -
Simplicity is the Key
