I saw one of the google street view cars last week in Enstone, Oxfordshire. These are the cars that Google is using to populate their new Street View function with pictures of actual streets. For those of you who don’t know Enstone, its the back of beyond, and the Google car was going up and down little farm tracks in rural Oxfordshire, filming up every track. So streetview will be more than just major cities, it will include little rural lanes. Very interesting.
I tried and failed to get a picture on the mobile phone as my camera was in the boot, so here’s one I stole off flickr.
Update : This guy caught up with a street view car!
