Google Maps "Street View" is AMAZING!
Pardon me if I am late to the table, but I accidently discovered an absolutely amazing feature in Google Maps today. I was looking for an address in Knoxville, and saw feature new to me, "Street View". This is available in many places, around cities. Click on that when looking at a map of a city, then it will go into a view mode where streets that are covered, ( most of the Knoxville area for one) and if you click on a street it goes to street level view, and you can pan around 360 degrees at any location. It is actual photographic view as if you are standing there! While on any covered street/road you can navigate the street by clicking the arrows on the street so that you move along the road, and at any point you can then view 360 degrees around.
I am amazed at the amount of photographic data they collected! Evidently they have some system that takes continuous 360 degree pictures while they are driving the roads. If you navigate a road in street view where there is a car ahead/behind, as you move along the road the other car does also.
Absolutely mind boggling!
Try it in you area to see if "Street View" is there!
