  1. I am not sure if it has been announced anywhere but Chile’s Street View has been expanded across the whole country and some cities in Peru have Street View as well.

  2. While I am sure covering popular places such as zoos makes business sense for Google by attracting advertising, continuing to extend conventional Street View, as recently in Chile and Peru, is just as important in building the global appeal of the ‘product’.

    Incidentally, the new coverage in Peru includes long lengths of road through the high Andes and the coastal deserts – amazing landscapes. And in Chile you can visit the southernmost point of Street Vies in the Americas … so far, but hoping for more.

  3. It’s strange that google included views from a Chinese Park. I thought that region was discontinued.

  4. Why in Google Earth for those places are not available blue lines on the map?
