Old Beijing Landscape

To revive the old landscape of Beijing, we placed old photographs of Beijing using Google Earth KML. Google Earth has a function called "Photograph Overlay" that allows users to place photographs considering the direction of a camera which can be adjusted by viewing the virtual finder of a camera. We can see the same building from multiple viewpoints using multiple old photographs, so this is a useful tool for think about the old landscape.
