Hey, I just recently found out about this, and I think it is quite cool :> When you go to Google.com, you can pick between Internet, pictures, maps and some other stuff, top left. Click on 'Maps'.
Then, in the search field, you type any street you want to view. For now, I'll just type my own :>
Just type street name and zip code, then click "Search in Google Maps".
Then you click on the "A" and you see this:
Now click on Street View.
Then you can navigate around, either by clicking the arrows, or just double clicking the place you want the 'camera' to move to :>
Now, I'm just gonna click the arrows untill I get to the end of my street.
If you want to go the other way, use the arrow keys on your keyboard to scroll around with, and use the Scroll on your mouse to zoom in/out.
So now, I just turned around and is ready to go the other way on my street :>
As I said earlier, I just recently found out about this and since I found it quite cool, I just wanted to share it with you =)
I've known about this for a while, but still quite cool! We should all post a pic of our street! Google doesn't think my street is important though, and doesn't have a street view of it. :'(

Those photos are from hidden cameras in every street ^^ Not kidding (maybe in the least known streets there aren't...but all important ones have that )
NIJA CAMERAS :O
This is cool, but I guess Google maps aren't updated with all places around the world. If these pics are just because of the hidden cams, it is not worth it at al. Even you can set up live streaming view of your street.
na they have a car they drive in with a camera on top I've seem it on the news. Just it may take a while to get to all the streets in the WHOLE WORLD!
You all are failures. This is from satelite, justified angle.
Let's eat Grandpa! - Let's eat, Grandpa!
Punctuation, it saves lives.
You guys know nothing, google people drive around with a funky car filled with cameras in many directions. that takes pics every x seconds or meter or so.
it is pretty cool, theres a picture not far from me with a dude standing at the side of the road pissing
My car is not leaking oil?
Its marking its territory!
Yeap, its a car loaded with hi-teck equipment ;D
I heard about some people that tried to attack the car dressed in diving suits, just to make a story out of it^^
