I learned about this one from an ancienthistory.about.com mailing:
Just Perfect for Us: Google Map of Ancient Rome
Wednesday November 12, 2008
Google Earth has made possible a vision of Imperial Rome in 320 A.D. (Constantine‘s time) showing more than 6000 3-D buildings. If you already have Google Earth you’ll know it allows you to zoom around to all corners of the earth and see at least the vision from above of distant lands. This new “gallery layer” goes back further. You need to download Google Earth 4.3 and supposedly find the Rome 3-D within the Gallery layer. Unfortunately, my computer seems to be too old for it, so I can’t tell you anything more. If you successfully download it, please post your comments about the Google 3-D map of Rome here.
