Burlington Enters Cyberspace
Vermont’s largest city is kicking off a new initiative to create a virtual Burlington in cyberspace. With support from internet giant Google and Green Mountain GeoGraphics of Essex Junction, the city is assembling a volunteer “Community Modeling Team” to create computer models of buildings in Burlington’s downtown. The building models will be loaded into Google Earth, to create a virtual queen city online. The kick-off of this project comes as the city celebrates National Community Planning Month. The VisualizeBurlington 3D project will provide a foundation of information that will enable city planners and citizens to understand the visual impact of future development in the city. If you are interested in participating on Burlington’s Community Modeling Team, contact David White in the City’s Department of Planning and Zoning at 865-7194 or email at DEWhite@ci.burlington.vt.us.
