Cool sounding project already well under way. Building a virtual city will probably become commonplace, at least for major cities and points of interest. The ability to store and access them will require lots of bandwidth. Excerpt:

The challenge of the project is not only recreating the city but finding a
way to store and unload the data. And while today's home computers are
becoming stronger and faster, the machines needed to process such
information won't hit store shelves for a few more years.



Message for those who talk about bandwidth-glut. Please note: "If you build it, they will come."
