Google launches Street View in Hungary and Lesotho; expands in Poland and Romania

Google has pushed out some significant updates to their Street View imagery today, launching in Hungary and Lesotho and greatly expanding their imagery in Poland and Romania (along with other parts of the world, including France, Italy, Russia, Singapore and Thailand).  Thanks to GEB reader ‘Munden’ for being the first to let us know about this update.

Not only have they added all of this imagery, but they’ve added quite a few new places using their trike system, such as Sha Tin Che Kung Temple in Hong Kong.

As always, remember that this imagery can be viewed in Google Maps but can also be viewed directly in Google Earth.  Here’s how that works:

    And yet many places of the USA STILL have imagery from 2008! I find that more incredible then what’s being done in other parts of the world now.

    Not to be mean but I think Google has given The Americas the finger.

    I personally would love to see South America get a lot of coverage going up those steep jungle mountain roads going thru the twisties.
