Google Street View
3 December, 2008 Leave a comment
Google’s Street View service is now live in New Zealand!
Street View lets you get 360 degree panoramic street level views inside Google Maps. As for being interactive, you can not only spin the camera on the spot, but also zoom and move along streets to navigate around the city.
If you’re visiting somewhere for the first time this is a fantastic way to familiarise yourself with nearby buildings or scenery before you head off. For other ideas on how to use it, Google have a couple of lists of tips for everyday use and for businesses and organisations.
For a list of available locations in NZ, check out this Wikipedia page.
Enjoy! …but beware, it’s a fascinating time waster! 🙂
