Novità in Google Maps: Street View

Monday, June 4th, 2007

Abbiamo esplorato il mondo dall’occhio del satellite.
Abbiamo sbirciato le facciate dei palazzi e monumenti nelle 4 direzioni cardinali con maps.live.com nelle assonometrie della funzione Bird’s Eye.

Ma ora godiamoci questo:
Street View

Clicca sulla nuova modalità “Street View“. Puoi vedere gli States con alcune icone di macchina fotografica sulle città. Cliccane una e poi “Zoom In”. Trascina il pupazzetto arancione su una qualsiasi strada con bordo blu e… fatti un giro!
Guardati attorno a 360°, segui una strada o cambia via ad un incrocio… e zoomma in giro!

Ma è proprio il fenomenale zoom il “problema”:
pare possa violare la privacy di qualcuno. Ecco un esempio con un uomo che entra in una libreria per adulti.
Soprattutto a San Francisco: al momento la preview è disponibile solo per 5 città, San Francisco -per quel che posso apprezzare- ha la mappatura di immagini più dettagliata, anche doppia rispetto allo zoom delle altre città.

Un’orda di bloggers, a distanza di poche ore dal lancio, ha già cominciato a postare le viste più curiose e particolari; se ne avete trovate, postatele pure nei commenti.

New feature in Google Maps: Street View

Monday, June 4th, 2007

We explored the world from a satellite view.
We enjoyed the building elevations from cardinal directions with maps.live.com in axonometric projection of the Bird’s Eye feature.

But now enjoy this:
Street View

Click on the new “Street View” button. You can see the States with a few camera icons on cities. Click one camera and then “Zoom In”. Drag the orange man icon on a blue bordered street and… you’re on the streets!
Look around in 360°, drive along or navigate on to another street once you reach the center of an intersection, zoom around!

And the amazing zoom is the problem: it seems it could violate someone’s privacy. Here’s an example with a man entering an Adult Bookshop.
Specially in San Francisco: at the moment the preview features 5 cities only, San Francisco -as far as I can appreciate- has the most detailed imagery, even the double compared to other four cities’ zoom.

A crowd of bloggers started to post the most curious views a few hours after the feature went live, so if you have any, feel free to share.
