GeoSimPHILLY: Virtual Philadelphia
I'm actually speechless, if you can believe it. ~Where The Virtual Meets The Real~ from yankodesign.com: Enter this truly amazing step in virtual tourism called “GeoSim” www.geosimcities.com. It is the largest virtual model of a city and the singular representation mirroring real-life Philadelphia, their first test city. Great for city planners, architects wanting to see how a property integrates into the local landscape or just monetarily challenged tourists. GeoSimCities has managed to render out nearly the entire city for you to explore and virtually travel through. From the current store fronts and exact architecture, even down to the garbage cans on the street, you can wander around cities with other live virtual tourist and get a pretty good idea of (at the very least) what that place looks like. They are set to launch in a dozen more cities very soon, until then, welcome to Philadelphia.
