Google Street View

Google Street View, which has been available since May 2007, is a feature of Google Maps and Google Earth that provides 360° horizontal and 290° vertical panoramic street level views, and allows users to view parts of some regions of the world, including individual buildings, at ground level. Last week, the service was extended to include selected cities in the UK and the Netherlands. Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Groningen, Manchester, London, Birmingham, Newcastle, Coventry and Liverpool all now feature, together with, rather intriguingly, the much-maligned Lincolnshire town of Scunthorpe.
