Google Maps Biggest Street View Update Gets more than 250k miles of road Worldwide
Software giant Google has announced what is being reportedly said as the biggest update ever, that the MountainView Valley company is adding 400,000 kilometres of roads from around the world to Google Maps Street View.
With that being said, Google is basically doubling the number of its Street View special collections.
“We’re increasing Street View coverage in Macau, Singapore, Sweden, the U.S., Thailand, Taiwan, Italy, Great Britain, Denmark, Norway and Canada,” says Google’s Street View Program Manager Ulf Spitzer. “And we’re launching special collections in South Africa, Japan, Spain, France, Brazil and Mexico, among others.”
With this update, users will now be able to explore Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall in Taiwan or Catherine Palace in Russia right on their device screens.
However, reportedly, no Indian landmark has yet been added to Google's Street View collections yet.
Street View, as you know, is a useful resource when you’re planning a route or looking for a destination, but it can also magically transport you to some of the world’s picturesque and culturally significant landmarks.
