New Street View imagery in Bangladesh

The last major addition of Street View imagery to a new location was the addition of Argentina and an expansion of the Malaysian imagery in September last year.

Now Google has added Street View to Bangladesh. Thank you to GEB reader Martin for letting us know about this. The coverage is currently only in two cities, Chittagong and Dhaka. They are, however, Bangladesh’s two largest cities. According to Wikipedia Dhaka has a population of over 12 million people and is the 9th largest city in the world.

Some pretty impressive electrical wiring in Dhaka.See it in Street View here.

There have not been many other additions to Street View since September last year. We took a screen shot of the Street View map on September 26th, 2014 and have compared it to a screen shot from February 6th, 2015 and found both additions to Street View and apparently subtractions, too!

Some Street View appears to have been been removed (red areas), but we suspect it is just variation in how Google displays street view coverage at that zoom level.

    Unfortunately, it’s not simply a zoom leve issue. Large swaths of Street View imagery in northern Canada, including nearly all of the Northwest Territories imagery, are no longer available. Hopefully this isn’t permanent.

    Street View in Bangladesh is great, and for some really spectacular scenery, roads and iconic decorated trucks visit Bhutan to the north where (2013 dated) Street View coverage has been rather ‘under the. radar’.

    The generalisation in the screen shots in the post is seriously misleading, for example most of Germany and large parts of the Balkans have no Street View coverage.

      Sorry but Google ain’t going to stop being misleading any time soon until they hit bankruptcy then they will find ways to cover their butts!
