google maps streetview

Filed under: uncategorized — gavinedwardsuk @ 3:55 pm

google have released another viewing method for their mapping site to durther push them forward in the online mapping industry.

The new streetview allows the user to switch to a 360 degree view o fthe street with the streets overlayed. Its a great tool, not flawless but another step into images and mapping techniques and adds an extra layer of context.

So far the photos are only available in certain places stateside. I decided to have a quick look up the strip in vegas and visit the Bellagio as i know it. Its here i spotted that the system isn’t without its flaws….
