Six New Cities Added to Google Street View

Google continues to add street-view imagery for 6 new US cities, even after Immersive Media announced it will terminate the content license agreement at the end of the year. The new cities are: Chicago, Phoenix, Tucson, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia and Portland (the first three cities have high-resolution images). Google Street View now covers 15 cities in the US.

"Ever wish you could pan up to the very top of a 50-story skyscraper using Street View? Well, prepare yourself for some serious sightseeing; we've introduced the ability to pan up in most new cities," announces the LatLong blog. A good example is the Sears Tower, the tallest building in the United States.

  1. I knew I saw one of their vans when I was driving home! Found my car as soon as I heard they posted Tucson Here
    Cool!

  2. They were in Worcester, MA last week. A white, four door (I believe) Saturn, CA plates, magnetic sign saying Google and a two foot, orange/pinkish stick with cameras on top. An elderly couple were driving and didn't appreciate the quick sign I made and held on the roof of my car. =)
