eDuShi (meaning eCity) has made cool "real" isometric 3D maps of many cities in 
China. The style is somewhere in between cartoon and reality, but obviously much 

cleaner than the cities are in real life. The buildings look similar to their 
counterparts in real life.

Most of the maps are in Chinese, but there is an example of Hong Kong in English 
here:

I wonder how much of it is clever software, and how much is cheap labour.

Simon.
