Nicely executed by Google.
Google has unveiled Street View, a new feature that gives a panoramic flavour to its Google Maps application by offering 360-degree, navigable photographic views of selected locations.
The Street View feature places users at road level, giving them the perspective of drivers and pedestrians. But far from just being a static image, users are free to walk around and view landmarks, restaurants and other various points of interests. An introductory video on the Google Maps page shows the resolution in the photos is sufficient even to read parking restriction signs.
