Google maps is adding street view

Street View gives you navigable 360-degree street-level imagery in Google Maps for selected cities. You can see images for a spot and take virtual walks along that street. So when you’re trying to find the perfect outdoor cafe for lunch with friends or want a glimpse of the neighborhood you’re considering moving to, use Google Maps to see what the spot actually looks like, as if you were right there in person.

Currently Street View imagery is available for the San Francisco Bay Area, New York City, Las Vegas, Miami, and Denver; and we expect to launch this feature in many more cities soon.

Check out San Francisco . Seriously, you have to interact with this to really get it.

Or follow the Google’s demo link in the left panel of the Google Maps page.
