Google’s “Build Your Campus in 3D” winners announced

As announced on the Google Lat Long blog, today Google revealed the winners of their “Build Your Campus in 3D Competition“. They are:

  • University of Minnesota – Department of Architecture
  • Purdue University – Departments of Computer Graphics Technology and Education

  • Stanford University – Department of Architectural Design
  • Indiana University Purdue University Fort Wayne (IPFW) – Departments of Engineering and Computer Science

The winners get to fly out to Mountain View in August for a 3-day visit and workshop.  Fun prize!

Even better, Google says that nearly 4,000 buildings were modeled and submitted for this contest.   That will certainly give their 3D content a boost when all of that is pushed into Google Earth.
