Google Maps visits Australia

I knew that Google Maps were ‘street-viewing’ Australia however I had no clue that it was going to be released so soon.

Google Maps has been driving around majority of Victoria, the area surrounding Brisbane, Sydney, South Australia and Perth taking 360 degree images of those locations… from street/pedestrian perspective. This raises some privacy issues however I’m not writing to discuss them now :P

Google Maps visits Australia

Show your friends a picture of their house using Google Maps; its funny to watch their reaction of suprise and awe of such a feat – some describing it as ‘scary’ or ‘just amazing’. And the world comes together, even closer, once again.

There are still patches within the blue areas which still need to be mapped however im sure it wont be long before the next ‘batch’ of pictures are released to the internet.
