Google on the Streets: Whats new?Last year (2007) in May we wrote an article about Google’s new “Street View” feature. Today, we are taking a look at the past, to observe its improvements and updates. The rapid expansion of Street View began with 4 major city’s in the USA, and has over the past few months increased to 21. These cities now include: Boston, MA, Chicago, IL, Dallas, TX, Denver, CO, Detroit, MI, Houston, TX, Indianapolis, IN, Las Vegas, NV, Los Angeles, CA, Miami, FL, Minneapolis, MN, New York, NY, Orlando, FL, Philadelphia, PA, Phoenix, AZ, Pittsburgh, PA, Portland, OR, Providence, RI, San Diego, CA, San Francisco, CA, and lastly Tucson, AZ.

For your convenience, I have placed below the instructions (as referenced in our original Street View article) on how to use the Street View service:

  1. Take a trip to www.maps.google.com
  2. Switch the view of the map to “Satellite”. (Shown in top-right of map)
  3. Enter your desired location in the search bar and press Search. (Ex. Financial District, New York, NY)
  4. Click the “Street View” button. (Shown in top-right of map)
  5. Drag the little yellow guy onto one of the blue outlined streets and a Street View will appear.
  • Navigate the street view by re-dragging and dropping the yellow guy onto a different blue outlined street or click the North, South, East, West buttons in the street view.

Maybe you will see Google on the Streets in your town!
