Google Model Your Town Competition
The 2010 winning town is Barranco, Lima, Peru!
Jorge De Albertis Bettocchi, a 38 year-old corporate business attorney, modeled the Barranco District of Lima in Peru. He entered the competition to generate pride among his fellow citizens and have his 3D models serve as a tool for tourism, promotion, investment, and preservation of Barranco’s historic architecture. In addition, the public schools in the community are in need of financial resources.
In the next few months a team from Google’s Boulder office will visit Jorge and the Barranco community to recognize his efforts. Congratulations, Jorge!
Take a 3D tour of Jorge’s models in Google Earth (make sure you have Google Earth 5 installed).
