Google Earth gives you the option to have the program superimpose 3-D illustrations of buildings over its satellite photos, which comes in handy when the angle of objects in the photo does not match your viewing angle, as seen in this shot of the Statue Of Liberty without 3-D.

The same shot (almost) with the 3-D enabled. I'm not sure which is the lesser of two evils: one is weird and one is fake. But it's a small complaint.

Another example...

The fountain pool at the Bellagio in Las Vegas without 3-D enabled.

And a wider shot of the Vegas Strip in 3-D.

London, with Big Ben in 3-D

Devil's Tower, Wyoming (from Close Encounters Of The Third Kind) in 3-D

St. Louis Arch (3-D)
