Google Maps Gets Gigantic Street View Update

 |  |  |  October 11, 2012


It never ceases to irk me that I can check out parks and streets around the world from me, yet I can’t see my own neighborhood on Google Street View. The Google Street View car rolled past my neighborhood, but didn’t bother to come through. Personally, I’d like a chance to play a nice  Street View prank.

While my neighborhood still lacks Street View detail, Google has announced the largest update to Street View in the feature’s history, having added 250,000 miles of roads around the world. The service has specifically increased coverage in Macau, Singapore, Sweden, the U.S., Thailand, Taiwan, Italy, Great Britain, Denmark, Norway and Canada.

The covers also increased in specific tourist locations such as Catherine Palace in Russia and other locations in Taiwan, Vancouver, and other places around the world. That means you can explore parks and even castles in distant lands from the comfort of your desk chair – but still not my neighborhood in Texas.
