A Powerful Example

The Parallel Graphics site provides a great example of the power of virtual place to give you a sense of the real. Take a look at this picture of Stanford and compare to this one. With a virtual city, you are free to walk anywhere you want within these hallowed grounds and get a sense of the place. Perhaps I am biased by having been there, but this example really catches the benefit of the virtual model perfectly.

Google Earth has not gotten around to including these structures at Stanford yet. Why wait? Let the community do it. How do you get Parallel Graphics to play in the community spirit with Google? Will it happen sooner, later, or never?
