Months ago, we wrote about Google’s plans to bring its amazing Street View technology to Valencia, and now that day has arrived. They’ve just announced that Street View is live in 4 Spanish cities: Madrid, Barcelona, Sevilla and VLC.
Street View allows people to take virtual walking tours through the cities of their choosing, combining comprehensive (and often stunning) imagery with Google’s exemplary map navigation. It’s a lot of fun just “walking” down random streets and, though it won’t ever beat the feeling of actually wandering aimlessly about El Carmen, it is a decent alternative for those who can’t be there.
Oh man… I have actual work to do, but this is too much fun. Google Street View – destroying office productivity around the world.
