Fresh Street View imagery in New Orleans, Baton Rouge and Lafayette

A handful of cities in Louisiana were updated with fresh Street View imagery today. New Orleans was the big one, with a remarkable amount of fresh imagery, and Google updated Baton Rouge and Lafayette as well.


New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu wrote a blog entry for Google’s Lat Long Blog, in which he details some of the great places you can see in this fresh imagery. The imagery is indeed quite sharp, and it’s a great way to show off the progress that New Orleans has made in the seven years since Hurricane Katrina.
Don’t forget that not only can view this imagery in Google Maps, but you can view it inside of Google Earth as well. Here’s a quick video that shows more about how that works:
