Google Streetview

Unveiled yesterday. Here is a rather nice view from the Golden Gate bridge. They have also included streel level coverage of Denver, Miami, New York and Las Vegas. I really like the interface – you pick up the little figure and drop him/her whereever you want to see the street level view. You can then pan around within the picture, and move it back or forward along the road by clicking the arrow.

This only seems to work on Google Maps US, which means you need to add “&gl=us” at the end of the url to see the streetview option.

Evil Google geniuses are taking over the planet.

Blogoscoped has more – and mapplets too.
