I have to say, impressed and creeped out is how I would describe my feelings on the latest results on Google’s street view for Google Maps. I cannot get over just how much coverage this things has these days! I have checked on a number of addresses for known bigger streets in these smaller towns – all of them are showing up.
This may sound odd, but it feels like we are being indexed by Google for easier searching, does it not? Normally I would not have such a problem with this, except that it just “feels” wrong at some core level. Harmless for most I suppose, but very wrong nonetheless.
Just how good is this new coverage area? Based on the map featured here, I would say that this appears to be better than the maps provided for cell phone coverage. The only thing that is a bummer is the fact that I could not get street view of my favorite restaurant in town. That would have been a cool bonus!
