Google Street View Arrives

Posted by chdot on March 19, 2009

Last year car mounted cameras toured streets in Edinburgh (and 24 other UK cities).

At last the results (Google Street View) can be viewed on-line.

Really quite impressive – unless of course you’ve been photographed somewhere you’d rather not have been…

Faces may have been blurred but your distinctive bike won’t have been! Hours of endless fun searching for people/bikes you know.

See if you can find a street scene with more bikes than this one.

Perhaps of more use is that the Google “satellite” images (used in Google Maps and Google Earth) of Edinburgh have been updated recently with slightly higher resolution and a bit more coverage of Mid and East Lothian.
