Street View comes to Google Maps

View Larger Map

Street View – a series of street level images stitched together – is now available in Google Maps as well as Google Earth. Have a play around in New York using the example above.

As a couple of people have commented, Street View has been in Google Maps for some time. The only new thing is the interface. Oops! What it does highlight is that it’s easy to miss something like this if the interface isn’t obvious.

Thank you to those who have commented.

If you go to Google Maps, you can activate Street View by dragging the little orange man onto American cities where Street View images have been taken.

    I hate to tell you this, but Street View has been available in Google Maps for some time now; in fact, if memory serves me correctly Street View was a feature of Google Maps before Google Earth. The only thing that has changed recently is the Street View interface in Maps.

    Actually, Street View has been in Google Maps ever since it started in May 2007.
