Google Maps StreetView in Four New Cities

The very popular Google Maps Streetview application has been updated to include new imagery from four new cities: San Diego, Los Angeles, Houston and Orlando. Simply go to one of these cities in Google Maps and click on the “StreetView” button. The new imagery was announced at the Google LatLong blog.
You should expect to see a wave of posts from people finding interesting sightseeing in the new Streetview imagery (like those found in the first wave of cities). Check out web sites like, Laudontech, or for pointers to good sights.

  1. I added here the most amazing Street View from the last update (08/2007):

    why is most of the new street view footage in low resolution???
    SFC and San Diego are the only high resolution cities of the 9 cities online in street view right now… that’s a little over 20%… i find street view in low resolution pretty unusable, since one can’t read street sign or company names…

  3. I agree with smokeonit, aside from the novelty value there’s really not much point to the “low res only” coverage.
