A quiet announcement from Google(UK)


Street View UK

Street View UK

I came across this by accident.  Today (11th March) Google announced they have finished driving up and down every road and street in the UK with their 360 degree cameras.

This means that their street-view facility on Google Maps is complete.  I live in the least densely populated county in England and Wales and was pleasantly surprised to see just how comprehensive their coverage has been.   They even managed to capture my village in one of those rare occasions, a dry and sunny day in Wales.

How long before all this photographic data is incorporated in to sat-nav applications?
