FIFA World Cup 2010: GigaPan and Google Earth

Both Google Earth and Gigaplan have started to show off some locations in South Africa, which is where the FIFA World Cup 2010 is to be held. Gigplan started showing of some of these locations last year, such as Pretoria. This is where the Loftus Versfeld stadium is located.

When you land on the page you will just see a wide skinny image above, you will need to zoom in closer before you can even begin to see any of the buildings clearly. The Loftus Versfeld stadium is located just left off the center, just zoom in closer for a more detailed look. Visit Gigapan for more details.

Google Earth has so much more to offer though, and with the inclusion of Street View you will never get a better chance to see the venues – unless you are there of course. This added feature would now make it easier for residents to find a new home in certain location in SA.

According to Product-reviews some of those cities include: Cape Town, Durban, Johannesburg, Port Elizabeth and Pretoria. Tourists who have already booked to watch a match will also find this latest edition to Google Earth very useful.

Will you find any of these tools useful?
