GeoSimCities is a website that provides a 3-D virtual representation of cities.
This is a wonderful idea. I visited the site and checked out the virtual Philadelphia tours of offered on the site. Also included in virtual Philly was E-shopping, city planning, human interaction with other visitors to the site, local searches and more. I recommend swinging by this fascinating website. Geosimphilly is also fully downloadable.
Yanko Design notes that, "It is the largest virtual model of a city and the singular representation mirroring real-life Philadelphia, their first test city".
Philly is the first test city and I can't wait for GeoSimCities to do New York City!
