<p>Hi Guys, its been a little while since I last Blogged so I will take this opportunity to wish you all a happy a new year. What follows is a few of our latest offerings, with one more to follow once I have finished it hopefully later today but as someone is coming in to pull down a wall in the office tomorrow I'm not sure I'm gonna get there in time!</p> <p>Also a quick welcome to anyone coming through to us from <a href="http://www.3dvia.com" target="_blank">3Dvia</a>. Somehow my work has ended up on the homepage so that makes this post long over due for some of you.</p> <p>Anyway here goes:</p> <p>&#160;</p> <h3>Earthware Tower</h3> <p><embed pluginspage="http://macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer" src="http://images.video.msn.com/flash/soapbox1_1.swf" width="432" height="364" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" quality="high" base="http://images.video.msn.com" allowfullscreen="true" flashvars="c=v&amp;v=1deda64d-b0e8-413d-8e9c-f58c6197a572&amp;ifs=true&amp;fr=msnvideo&amp;mkt=en-GB&amp;brand=" /></p> <p>This video demonstrates the Earthware tower which allows the user to view the inside as well as the outside of a building in Google Earth. This is the first product aimed at developers of large residential buildings with complicated features. The video outlines the main selling points and a few new features of this style of 3D model. Below is the link to download the Google Earth file so that you can have a play yourself! </p> <p><a href="http://www.earthware.co.uk/virtualneighbourhoods/Earthware_tower.kmz" target="_blank">Download Earthware Tower for Google Earth</a> </p> <p>&#160;</p> <h3>Earthware Superstore</h3> <p><embed pluginspage="http://macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer" src="http://images.video.msn.com/flash/soapbox1_1.swf" width="432" height="364" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" flashvars="c=v&amp;v=80f45844-c68e-4990-9f60-003af50af206&amp;ifs=true&amp;fr=msnvideo&amp;mkt=en-GB&amp;brand=" allowfullscreen="true" base="http://images.video.msn.com" quality="high" /> <br /></p> <p>As with all these videos please excuse all the rubbish music. If it were up to me it would be something a little be more cool and a lot less clich&#233; but we don't want to have to pay royalties so my choice was limited!</p> <p>Anyway this video shows Earthware superstore a fictional out of town shopping centre or depot style building. This to has a simple interior to show the scope of what is becoming possible with Google Earth and will hopefully be possible with virtual earth very soon.</p> <p>If your interested in commercial property please check out <a href="http://www.novaloca.com/property-search-results/mapframe.aspx?url=http://novaloca.earthware.co.uk/default.aspx_Q_key_E_t1wmFK2SaDp+bK8EJ1CqCZQxgr+qoGwuXx400sMypOkup7wUBy219lYtcDy1DJKqHWbjZBLlaA5WJHzjHGIsKZFh8YM1q9RE6lUa1g+bhh+b9dVxq5LcPA_E__E__A_sizefrom_E_1_A_sizeto_E_500000+_A_salestatusid_E_1_A_propertytypeids_E_1,2,3,4,5,6_A_saletypeids_E_1,2_A_latitude_E_51.50000000_A_longitude_E_-0.11666670_A_zoomlevel_E_11" target="_blank">www.novaloca.com</a> which has a working example of Earthware's advanced mapping and where hopefully 3D buildings will become a common place feature of the search once Microsoft has developed their tool kit a bit further.</p> <p><a href="http://www.earthware.co.uk/virtualneighbourhoods/earthware_superstore.kmz" target="_blank">Download Earthware Superstore for Google Earth</a></p> <p>&#160;</p> <p>As usual we would love your feedback on these items using the comments below, or if you have any business propositions then please <a href="http://www.earthware.co.uk/contact-earthware.aspx" target="_blank">contact us</a>. </p> <p>Cheers</p> <p>Chris Jackson <br />Multimedia Developer</p>
