- Before we started, if you looked at
Chattanooga in Google Earth, it looked like a flattened
casserole with a mountain coming out of it ("Flattanooga"). Our hope was to bring it into 3D for those of us who live in the 3rd
dimension to enjoy.

Downtown Chattanooga 3D Tour
Chattanooga 3D was launched in 2009 by Stephen and Karen Culp to bring Chattanooga to life on Google Earth. Since then, River City Company
has added more than one hundred 3D models of downtown locations to use
in marketing and business recruitment efforts. By creating online
video tours of properties in the downtown area, River City Company
helps realtors and developers showcase specific real estate
opportunities. Zoom in to Chattanooga on Google maps and turn on the
Earth layer to view Chattanooga in 3D. For more information, including
how to put your property on the 3D map, contact Jim Williamson at
423-265-3700 or email@example.com.
Google's first Model Your
Town Competition in 2010 was open to people from all over the world
running from December 1, 2009 through March 2, 2010. Over
160 teams entered, and the collections who participated (including Chattanooga 3D) can be found here. Take a look around, there are some
beautiful models to view. Congratulations to the 2010 winning town, Barranco, Lima, Peru!
