The Batcave now visible in Street View

As revealed by Google Maps Mania, “Bruce Wayne’s residence” has been captured in Street View and it includes the Batcave. It is not true Street View, but what Google calls either ‘Business View’ or ‘See Inside’. As such, it does not show up as the normal blue lines used for Street View, but rather an unassuming orange dot by the side of the road near Orion Charter Township in Michigan, USA.

To explore it in Google Earth download this KML file then place the yellow man on the location it marks. Alternatively, go here to explore it in Google Maps.

Once you have entered Street View you find yourself in a small, unassuming country residence by a lake. Walk to the end of the room and you will suddenly find yourself in an underground tunnel that leads to the Batmobile.

According to Wikipedia, a number of different buildings have been used to represent Wayne Manor. The only one we were able to get close to in Street View is Wollaton Hall, found in Nottingham, England.

    Sorry for an OT post. I need to see meridians and parallels in google earth for android (it’s for one of mine students that dont have internet access in the PC). I think it can be done with a kml file with the grid of parallels and meridians. Do you know if such a file exist?

      I do not know of one but it would be fairly easy to create one. What sort of resolution would you need? One line per degree?
