Historic Preservation From a New Dimension
Night is falling quickly on the unique architecture of the Carnegie Libraries, bringing with it a lose of part of the fabric that makes up America.
3D Carnegie, in utilizing the design program called Google Sketchup and Google Earth, and is doing their part in creating the first three dimensional historic record of these amazing buildings.
Each three dimensional model will be placed within the 3D layer of Google Earth, the worlds largest interactive map, for all to see and appreciate.
Feel free to visit our Google Group if your interested in contributing in the effort to model these buildings. Available there is a Google Earth KMZ file with all the California Carnegie locations already mapped out.
Completed models will have a presence here also. Like the Paso Robles Carnegie below.
