Street View on Zenbu

December 3, 2008

Google launched Street View, street-level imagery, in New Zealand yesterday. This is seriously cool technology. A lot of the media yesterday seemed to focus on the negative and a small minority whining about privacy concerns. Puhlease. The photos are taken in a public place and nobody really cares to see you walking your dog or watering your lawn. Google has avenues for reporting imagery of concern so I hope to hear more positive news about all the cool stuff this enables.

Trade Me was first off the blocks integrating street view into their property listings. What a brilliant way to suss out the neighbourhood. Top marks.

Street View is now available on Zenbu too. See examples at the following links (click Street View above the map)

The Beehive (you’ll have to pan upwards to see the hive, not just the garage!)

Tamaki Yacht Club (pan right for a great view of Rangitoto)

Very excited about this. Nice one Google.
