Thanks to recent research inside the maps division, when a Street View car captures photos of a stretch of road, algorithms can now automatically create new addresses in the company’s maps database by locating and transcribing any street names and numbers.

Can't wait til the front of my office gets refilmed. Last time they came by, I had a work truck parked outside my front door and the guys were standing around taking a smoke break... great publicity :(
Last time they came by, I had a work truck parked outside my front door and the guys were standing around taking a smoke break.On Google Street View you can see my second-to-last bicycle parked outside the garage. From this I deduce that I had just come back from one errand and was planning shortly to leave for another one. (Darn! If I'd known, I would have looked out the window and waved.) What makes it more fun is that my building has only just been painted a significantly different color. If and when they do update things, I'll know at a glance.
Very unnerving, to be sure: I've gone down that street hundreds of times, and suddenly it presents me with a series of buildings I've never seen in my life.
Most of my town was last filmed in April-June 2012,
2006 or 2007. Probably 2007Street View shows the year and month. I don't know whether this is a recently added feature or if I just never noticed it until lately. Both explanations are, of course, equally possible. For comparison purposes I zoomed in on random stretches of Market St--February 2017--Karl Johans Gate--April 2016--and Tunnels of Moose Jaw--September 2016. The Googleplex, interestingly, dates back to January 2011. What don't they want us to see?
My most recent digital camera died, and I've never bothered even to learn how to take pictures with the Android. I've got a DSLR in my shopping cart, aiming for before the end of next month. But I still miss my Minolta.My 20megapixel Android takes better pictures than any camera I've ever owned, and I had a couple nice ones.
Nikon must be shaking in their boots
I've been looking into getting certified as a Street View photographerIf a sheep [theguardian.com]* can do it, how high can their standards be?
I just this minute received a scam call about the upgraded street view photo for my business. She said she was from Google numerous times. When she said "there is a one-time fee for..." I hung up then reported the call as SPAM.
have others experienced an incredible increase in unwanted calls since the US Government implemented the "Do Not Call" legislationOf course not. The DNC list actually works pretty well, although some of the pros are using dynamically generated numbers that circumvent blocking.
