Google Maps Gets the Largest Street View To Date
Christo [PCD] , Tuesday 16 October 2012 - 09:48:57 //

250,000 miles more Street View coverage

Google Maps has been around for quite a few years and one of the most significant additions to the service was Street View coverage. Street View shows people looking at the maps exactly what you would see as you drive down the road in question.

However, one of the biggest catches with Street View is that imagery isn't available in many locations.

To combat this, Google has announced that it has added a huge amount of new Street View data to Google Maps with the most comprehensive update ever made to the offering. Google says that it added over 250,000 miles of roads around the world to its Street View coverage area.

Specifically the new Street View coverage includes roads in Macau, Singapore, Sweden, the U.S., Thailand, Taiwan, Italy, Great Britain, Denmark, Norway and Canada. Google is also launching special collections in South Africa, Japan, Spain, France, Brazil and Mexico among other locations.

Street View is more than just what you see driving down a particular road. The service also offers imagery of landmarks such as Elsinore Castle in Denmark and many other places. Street View imagery is also available for sites in Russia such as Catherine Palace and the Ferapontov monastery. A number of other tourist attractions and parts are available to explore using Street View. Google also promises more Street view updates in the future.

The new Street View content should be available for iOS users via Safari.
