Google has been updating and expanding their Street View imagery quite a bit over the past year, but today’s update is their single largest in history with more than 250,000 miles of new and updated imagery! In addition, they’ve doubled the number of special collections that they have available, making Street View even more valuable than it already was.
They’ve increased coverage in Macau, Singapore, Sweden, the U.S., Thailand, Taiwan, Italy, Great Britain, Denmark, Norway and Canada and launched special collections in South Africa, Japan, Spain, France, Brazil, Mexico and others.
Some noteable areas to check out with the new imagery include Catherine Palace in Russia, Stanley Park in Vancouver (seen above) and Fort Canning Park in Singapore.
