3-D Stadium Maps From Google Earth

Richard at Map Game Day writes to say that Google has just released the Google Earth plug-in for Internet browsers using Windows. This means you'll be able to view Google Earth and college stadiums in 3-D right from the comfort of your browser.

Currently about 40 stadiums have 3-D animation capability and Richard has links to several of the stadiums on his site, as well as links to NFL 3-D stadium maps. Google says support for other operating systems is planned in future releases.

Richard also sent screen shots of what four venues look like in the new plug-in. From the top: Ohio Stadium, Notre Dame Stadium, Florida State's Doak S. Campbell Stadium and the L.A. Coliseum.
