Google street is a fundamental part of Googles free Google Earth application. Google Earth lets you fly anywhere on Earth using its built in special imagery software. Millions of imagery, maps, 3D buildings and terrain are used to create exact portraits of areas of earth as they are seen from space and now with street view, as seen by pedestrians!
Google Street View gives you the user, the option to walk around major street routes from around the world (London has now been covered in full!). There are 360 degree horizontal and 290 degree vertical views available to render and rotate as you wish. The following countries now have Google Street View; France, Italy, Netherlands, Spain, UK and United States.
As you browse streets, Googles application informs you of major road names and their relative direction. Number plates from cars and house addresses are hidden for privacy reasons.
The latest version of Google Earth even lets you save your favourite places and share them with friends. With new high definition technology, Googles satellite views are now in high definition with pixel perfect representations of vast areas of Earth. It will of course take time for all areas of Earth to be covered by these high definition images, but the rate Google has expanded there Google street view to whole of London, anythings possible.
Google Earth also comes in two other versions; Google Earth Advanced and Google Earth Enterprise Solutions. For an additional fee, users can view terrain and 3D detail to an even greater scale for pin point accuracy.
