Argentina and Malaysia now in Street View

Argentina has just been added to Street View and there has been a significant increase in the coverage in Malaysia. Thanks to GEB reader Dave for letting us know. Earlier in the Week, the territory of Guam and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands were added. Thanks to GEB readers Martin and Kyle. GEB reader Dave also tells us some locations in the US have been added, including Mason and Grand Ledge, Michigan. If you know of any other areas, please let us know in the comments.

Street View Argentina and Malaysia
Street View coverage in Argentina and Malaysia.

The last major update we reported were the additions of Cambodia and Indonesia last month. Google, as far as we are aware, do not publish a list of changes, but they do have a map of the current coverage. Wikipedia maintains a useful timeline of updates.

Despite being recently released, a few locations in Argentina contain historical Street View. According to Wikipedia Google announced in September 2013 that Street View would be coming to Argentina, so it appears that the cars have been driving for the past year, as confirmed by the dates for the location below.

  1. Awesome!!!

  2. It looks like the there is now continuous coverage in Russia all the way from the western border to Vladivostok. There are still many open areas, but I think several urban centers have also grown in their coverage. I’d also noticed some of the islands, but wasn’t sure exactly how new they were.

    • Pretty sure this is new, and Street View even takes you to Khasan, the only Russian town on the birder with N Korea, also to the island of Sakhalinskaya north of Japan. Whole area well worth exploring.

  3. Street View doesn’t do Malaysia any favours, and the environment looks to be under considerable pressure. On the other hand the wide open spaces of Argentina are awesome, far south to what was once called ‘The Uttermost Part of the Earth’.

  4. There are probably many additions in Michigan. Mason and Grand Ledge were easy to spot, because they had minimal coverage before, and they were part of my spot checks. I’ve also found a few other new views in the Lansing area (but not Lansing itself). Charlotte, Eaton Rapids and Owosso all have street views from this summer. I haven’t noticed any cars driving in the Northern Lower or Upper Peninsulas on the “where is street view” page, so anything new is probably in the southern half of the Lower Peninsula.

  5. Areas near Gödöllő, Hungary are also updated

  6. If it weren’t for Bing updating then Google wouldn’t even have dreamed of this update as they aren’t what they used to be.
