Google Maps – Street View

Filed under: Friesen,Google,mapping — Lynne @ 1:44 pm

Mark Friesen notes:

Google’s extended its Street View all the way to the coast, east to Goldendale and Wasco, north almost to Chehalis and south past Salem.

Thanks for the heads up Mark.

This expansion isn’t limited to Oregon. A recent post on Google’s blog states that they are bringing Street View to 37 new areas (alas, Seattle is still missing) and expanding coverage in 15 existing areas.

Wait, there is more.

Google is also adding 10 new parks and recreation areas to Street View, including Lake Tahoe, California’s Death Valley National Park, and Yellowstone.

For those of you who aren’t familiar with Street View, it is a Google Maps feature that lets users view 360 degree photographs of an address.

The New cities include:

CA: Bakersfield, Fresno, Sacramento, Stockton
NJ: Newark
NV: Reno
VA: Virginia Beach
NC: Charlotte, Winston-Salem
SC: Columbia, Greenville
GA: Atlanta
FL: Boca Raton, Cape Coral, Ft. Lauderdale, Jacksonville, Sarasota, West Palm Beach
OH: Cincinnati, Columbus, Dayton, Toledo
MI: Ann Arbor
MO: St. Louis
KY: Lexington, Louisville
NE: Lincoln
OK: Oklahoma City, Tulsa
