Google Streetview Inside World Cup Soccer Stadiums

Just in time for the start of the World Cup later this week, Google has released new Google Maps Streetview imagery for South Africa. The imagery includes views of the interior of the stadiums in which the World Cup games will be played. As a complement to the Streetview imagery, Google has also released 3D models of the stadiums. The 3D models can be viewed in Google Earth. Watch the video below to learn more about the 3D models.
