Re: Digital Recreations of Historical Places

^Hm. Looks like a well-intentioned effort, but I'm not sure any site that lists one of their main projects as "Is your Gran, Grandad, Nan or Pops awesome? Add your grandparents to our Hall of Fame" really has the focus and vision necessary to break through the endless bayous of user-generated fluff and produce something valuable. Maybe they'll refine and evolve over time.

Anyhow, mapping historical photos is all well and good, and there've been some very nice SF mashup pictures here and there, but grounding one's focus in primary source photographs is of course pretty limiting... Which is why we could really use some full-on, totally interactive 3D models!
