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.

Good thing they don't get as specific as apartment numbers, or I'd have to tidy up my patio.

Impressive! How long before we have road accidents because people are following the signs they saw on Google, not the changed ones on the ground? Considering the dumb things satnav users do .......
