Video: Flyover the 9/11 Memorial using Google Earth

In case you missed it. The National September 11 Memorial & Museum and Google Inc. partnered to produce a stunning third-dimensional landscape featuring the 9/11 Memorial.  The Memorial, which will open next year, can be explored through Google Earth.

Google Earth allows online users to  pan over the tree-filled plaza, flying through a canopy that will shade an eight-acre public park space. They can peek through windows of the museum pavilion and see two seven-story-steel “tridents” that will greet future visitors entering the 9/11 Memorial Museum. Use your mouse to zoom in and see  the intricate detail of each cobblestone along the memorial plaza or pull away and hover over the entire World Trade Center site and lower Manhattan .

Enjoy the above video created by the Google team for the 9/11 Memorial.
