Welcome to the Virtual City Project
The Virtual City Project employs three-dimensional imaging technologies to create electronic representations of lost historic landscapes. Utilizing our palette of editing tools, users can create their own 3-D cities and link both text and images to landscape features. Currently, our generated landscapes are viewable in Google Earth.
The Virtual City is pleased to announce the availability of guided historic landscape tours. To take one of these tours click here.

Note: Users must have Google Earth on their computers in order to view these files. After downloading the .kmz (Google Earth) file, please wait for buildings to load before navigating. Premature navigation will interrupt the building-loading process. Most districts will load fully in 3-5 minutes. When the circle on the bottom right turns a solid blue color, the loading process is complete. Once in Google Earth, uncheck all options in the bottom left panel.
