Hong Kong

July 18, 2010

Our reseller in Hong Kong, ETC Educational Technology Connection, wanted to demonstrate Mapcaster at an exhibition for local schools, and to support them, we wanted to create a presentation that was about their country. Never having been to Hong Kong, it was hard to start!

Instead, we found this fantastic, interactive 3D map of Hong Kong at http://hongkong.edushi.com

3D Map of Hong Kong

3D Map of Hong Kong

It shows some of the buildings along the Kowloon (North) side of Victoria Harbour, which features in a lot of popular photos, with mountains beyond (and China beyond that!). What we found the most interesting part was of the representation of the (high rise) buildings and roads in the suburbs, which you can zoom into.

How long before we see 3D maps of other cities around the world?
