While it’s not yet available in Google Maps, Google has just announced that Street View will be going live in Ireland later today.
UPDATE: The new imagery is now live in Ireland, Brazil and Antarctica.
Also additional imagery in Hawaii (thanks ‘Munden’)
The Google Lat Long Blog has details.
According to the Irish Times, the imagery will cover more then 80,000km of road in the country including cities such as Dublin, Cork, Limerick, Galway and Waterford.
While Ireland is the only confirmed country so far, there are rumors that Brazil, Poland and perhaps others will finally get Street View coverage with this update. We’ll know for sure once it goes live later today.
