Google Street View

Google launches first ever street view of Yosemite’s El Capitan

One of the nerdiest things I do when I’m bored is to “travel” through Google Earth and Street View. It can be fun to go to view places I haven’t been or want to visit. For now, I’m content with Google bringing me to new places but someday, I will. Looks like I’ll be visiting more tourist spots as the search giant has recently launched Vertical Street View. It’s a new collection that features a vertical view of a mountain.

Okay Google: Take me to the World Cup

Google Maps adds over 1000 new Street View locations

Google Maps has revitalized the way we travel in so many ways, including the ability to (for all intents and purposes) void every other aftermarket GPS device on long trips. One of Google Maps' achievements is its ability to go down to street level and see an area face to face, something which a satellite from any other competitors simply cannot do. So with an add on of over 1000 new Street View locations around the world, finding that getaway spot may just get a whole lot easier.
