Biggest Street View update ever

by Volker Weber

Today we’re making our Street View coverage more comprehensive than ever before by launching our biggest ever update--doubling our number of special collections and updating over 250,000 miles of roads around the world. We’re increasing Street View coverage in Macau, Singapore, Sweden, the U.S., Thailand, Taiwan, Italy, Great Britain, Denmark, Norway and Canada. And we’re launching special collections in South Africa, Japan, Spain, France, Brazil and Mexico, among others.

Germany does not need that, right?

No, we don't need that.

We like it blurry. It inspires your creativity.

Note to travellers: The natives in Germany believe that you will steal their soul if you photograph their home.

@Oliver: LOL
When it was introduced, I found it funny how those houses actually attract more attention than the visible ones.

@Oliver: LOLx2

Being a former native of Germany I really don't understand what the problem is having a random picture of your house, business or apartment building on the internet. Now, as long its not a live picture :)

Now, do I agree they should collect WiFi data or anything like that while cruising the streets - NO.

What is especially fun is that the Google persons name that posted that sounds quite German.

Ceci n'est pas un blog

I explain difficult concepts in simple ways. For free, and for money. Clue procurement and bullshit detection.
