Google maps, STREET VIEW

has anyone else seen this?


go to google, put in MAPS.... put in your address, then click the little orange man above the zoom drag-bar on the left and drag it to a road.


if it doesnt work, your road might not have been done yet, but londons been pretty much covered right out to where i am on the essex border...


heres an example....
london subaru - Google Maps



hovver over it with your mouse and you can navigate...if you click the arrow that aims to PAVEMENT MEWS, you can even go round the back of the shops down an alley!??!?!?


i cant see the point in this at all? the only useage for it is negative useage.
they have blanked out faces and number plates, but ive come across a fair few that have been missed.


i dont like it. dodgy very dodgy. first satellite image, then birdseye view, now this.... whats next, 24 hour live footage of every single road in the country all in public domain?

Re: Google maps, STREET VIEW

it conveniently stops a few roads before mine. dont like it though. you can see over gardens and stuff.
plus the missing out of number plate blocking is a bit dodgy too.
