I'm on Google Street View
Have You Seen a Car Like This Near YouClick thumbnail to view full-size
A couple of weeks ago there was a strange car driving around the town where I live.
Well to be honest the car wasn't strange in itself just the run of the mill car that you see every day on the roads. but it is what was on the car that made it strange.
The car was a blue saloon with a roof rack and on the roof rack was a pole sticking up, at the top of the pole was what looked like a black box, the car was drivng around quite slowly around every single street and avenue in the town.
The car had a logo on both the drivers and passenger doors "Google" the black box on top of the car was a camera and the camera was taking pictures for Google Earth.
The pictures though are different from any pictures that you can take with a normal camera because these pictures give you a full 360 degrees view, this means that you get to see the wole picture from the front view to the rear view including the right and left side views. you can turn the pictures using your mouse in any direction that you please.
My Street on Google Earth
Although the Google car was around my town the pictures have not been added to Google Earth just yet and my street as you can see, in the picture on the right, can only be seen via the older ariel view.
I look forward to when Google do add my street to Google earth and I hope to see myself there even if they blur out my face to protect my Privacy.
I am sure that I will be in the picture simply because I saw the car and with all of the technology in the car I am positive that if I saw the car then it must have seen me too.
When Google Earth does update our town I will post the updated picture here even if I didn't make it into the picture.
