google maps street view

new today:
goto google maps: http://maps.google.com / type in your house address
if you are in a reasonably well trodden area:
click on street view, and with the arrows in the photograph, you can navigate 3 or 4 houses at a time.
the street view button must be there, and a heavy blue line around the street.
I have a daughter living in a dead end court. Her property has 4 pictures in street view.
Another daughter living in Darwin NT, doesn't get a mention, in fact it looks like all of NT (Australia) doesn't get a mention.
Have fun,
Cheers Don...

Nah, there's a bit of it there - zoom out to a whole-state view, click Street View and look at the blue-outlined bits. Looks like they turned off at Katherine and continued over to Broome (or came from). And they took the photos for Brisbane early this year at the latest.

New today??? Street view is over a year old now.

I'm in the DC area and we haven't been mapped yet even though I see more and more areas around us keep showing up. My Sister in Louisville KY got her home mapped many months ago. I grew up in Louisville and had fun visiting all my old hang outs with street view.
I'm still waiting for the live web cam version so you can see the earth in real time. :)

New today for Australia and Japan, but that wasn't the way it was announced here.
Apparently it has been available in France and the US for some time.
Pretty amazing anyway. A good friend of mine has his wife out the front watering the plants from a bucket, with laundry water. Water restrictions here in most of OZ right now.
Another says there is a dog crapping on his front lawn. And the dog's face isn't masked out either. :-)

Darn. They are mapping the rest of the world and still haven't gotten my house! :)

Yeah, if I only knew when the van was going to come by, I'd stand out and wave or do something else stupid for it. :)
I thought it might be fun to put a large date/time display on the roof so the next time they took a satellite picture I would have a good time stamp for when it happened. Same idea would work for the street view van if I put a display of some type out front.

How about painting "Google Sux" or similar on the roof? See if they pixilate it out?

That was my complaint. 1) i could have mown the lawn, 2) I could have cleaned the leaves out of the gutter 3) I could have sold adverytising space on the trailer top 2x3m. 4) I could have added the anchor chain and calf collar to the dog kennel*.
* I have a kennel for a large dog in the front yard, which is clearly visible from the street. Ireally need to add a long chain and big collar, with a sign "Warning, dog can drag kennel when adgitated" {:-).

I need a new roof on my garage. It is 30 feet * 40 feet, and I am thinking about painting 'John 3:16' to see if it shows up in the next update. Also, I am in the path to a major airport, and over 100 planes a week will fly right over it. There are probably more, too high to hear. I bet it would cause a lot of comments. :)

Yes. I rented an apartment in New York for a week earlier in the year. I used Google street view to "walk down the street" and check it out. Saw that both a subway entrance and Starbucks was on the corner. Pretty cool stuff!

Not much mention here either (Cameron Park, California). Ok, some folks say it's really only a truck stop but that ain't so.
What bugs me most is that since a few weeks the dang maps don't print out anymore. Only near-blank pages. Tried on different printers, none works with Google maps anymore.

Thanks Don, was wondering when the Aussie version would come online, the Google Van went around quite some time ago. Sadly it missed my little cul-de-sac though.
It's been around for a while now but I still find Google street view simple amazing...

They included my town that has a population of just 69. They even included roads that are not sealed. That area doesnt even have arial photos, but it has street view.

**It's pretty good. I live in a backwater part of Sydney (no ASDL2+ yet) and my place is there. I wish I'd seen the vehicle that took the pictures.

Apparently a bird in the US knew the vehicle, and lifted her top when it went past. :-)
Many other unusual stories starting to surface. Listening to radio 3AW this morning, they had people ringing in with the stories, and the for's and against.
Concerns about home security, ability to check out real estate properties and local schools/facilities, potential wealthy customers for large value purchases, see if a supplier has a real property, or just an office, or even a vacant block, is the potential girl friend wealthy, etc., etc.
The more thought you put into it, the more you can squeeze out of it.
Cheers Don...

Thanks Don. Lots of memories there - Woz Way, HP garage, Vegas, San Fran, Hollywood - almost like being there again.
Is Google street view the new corporate time waster I wonder? Everyone went berko with Google Earth.

The HP garage is interesting. I can't get the shot shown in your link here: http://www.gstreetsightings.com/google-street-view/hewlett-packard-garage-google-maps-interesting-street-view / Most likely due to an update.
Most curiously though, if you move one "frame" past the garage you can clearly see the shots were taken at different times (different parked cars etc). http://www.google.com/maps?q ltrain+station&f=l&near=&sll7.444591,-122.154257&sspn=0.012436,0.027895&hl=en&layer=c&ie=UTF8&ll7.448935,-122.153442&spn=0.012436,0.027895&t=h&z&cbll7.442962,-122.154369&panoid=_iVm6dDjr4v7HH8TS8HfrQ&cbp=1,299.301954677963,,0,4.120213111325127 I expected that on full streets maybe, but not half way down a street.
