VENUES


Recommended Posts

Good news: The Google aerial imagery for Beijing has just been updated so we can see a better look of the Games venues and the Olympic Village.

It's strange.

I was pretty sure of the exact location on the Beach Volleyball venue and I see nothing.

Go see at 39-56-03-30N and 116-28-20-10E

Also, I was not able to see the Rowing and Canoe/Kayak venue in Shunyi

CP, for Beach Volleyball, your coordinates are a little off--go to 39-56-44 N, 116-28-46 E and you will be in the middle of the stadium. This section of Beijing was NOT updated, this imagery shows this area approximately 1 year ago, spring of 2007. You don't see the Shunyi Canoe/Rowing facility because, again, the imagery of this area is old, looks about early 2006 when the area was just beginning construction. Go to coordinates 40-09-30 N, 116-40-35 E and you will be in what is now the rowing basin.

Thanks for the info.

I got the wrong information for the Beach Volleyball venue.

I was OK for Shunyi. That's exactelly where I thought.

A good indication that it's not all the parts of Beijing who have been updated in Google is when you check the new CCTV Building.
