Today’s e-newsletter from Google, called the Sightseer (sign up here), highlights a cool new feature of Google Earth. Street View is a layer now available. Once you turn on the layer, you will see icons of cameras in several locations. You can zoom in for a closer 3D look! Street View imagery is now available in the US, France, Spain, Japan, Australia, and Italy.
You can also access Street View from Google Maps. I just virtually traveled to the waterfront shops in Detroit. Yes, there really are some beautiful areas in Detroit! Wouldn’t you like to take a scroll down this street?
How-to directions for using Street View in Google Earth are available from Google Earth’s web page.
To access Street View from Google Maps, click and drag the yellow figure/man on the left side of your screen.
