Yes, in fact there is now a way to use Google's SketchUP 3D modeling
program in conjunction with Google Earth, great article about using it
on "24" to do storyboarding in a recent issue of Showreel magazine. I
would be surprised if Google isn't working on exactly the same thing as
this Microsoft technology demo.

There are so many many possiblities for this, including "archeological"
photo research. Think of the possiblities if people have all their old
photos going back decades scanned in. And then add face recognition.

Also of course, crime and terror fighting can find uses here. Whole new
world.
