Comments Off on West Palm Beach Competes for Google Earth Prize
Thanks to 20-year-old college student Chris Sardinas, West Palm Beach is one of the five finalists (along with cities in Peru, Germany, Spain and the United Kingdom) for Google’s Model Your Town competition. Voting is now open and runs through May 1st, 2010 and of course we want to support our hometown, right?
You can see more about the competition in this blog posting at the Palm Beach Post site or use the link above to see all the competitors.
This is remarkable work and no matter how the competition turns out Chris is to be congratulated on his outstanding work, modeling well-known landmarks such as the Phillip’s Point building, Trump Towers, Good Samaritan hospital, and the historic Palm Beach County courthouse. Chris even stepped across Lake Worth to model The Breakers Hotel in Palm Beach.
You can download the Google Earth file yourself at this link (KML format) and have a more detailed look, or view a video demonstration below.
Get your votes in today for your hometown and for the phenomenal work that Chris has done!
