Smile When You See This Blue Car Go By

You may not want to be caught in photos like the folks in the inset pictures! 

In my Being There presentations I demo-ed Google Maps Street View with some map photo viewsfrom downtown Phoenix… look out Australia, as the camera rigged cars are cruising your streets!

Take extra-special care of your appearance when walking around Australian capital city streets this summer, as one nose pick or bum scratch could be immortalised on Google Maps forever.

Google-branded cars with roof-mounted cameras have just begun traversing our streets, taking highly detailed panoramic street-level photos for a new Maps feature called Street View.

Once the photos go up next year, Google Maps users will be able to explore the country at ground-level for the first time with little more than a computer and an internet connection.
