Google Maps adds real-time images

Yesterday I was amazed to see yet another new feature in Google Maps.

A new button [Street View], gives you are real view of the street in question, you can rotate the image around 360 degrees, and move up and down the street. Now not all areas have been mapped yet, but you will see highlighted in blue what is.

It’s rather amazing what they can do. Presently they have images of San Francisco, Las Vegas, Denver, Miami and New York.

BTW: On the news tonight (Wed May 30) there is already controversy over the feature. People have been able to zoom in and see great detail of people, sometimes in places were it may be inappropriate.
