The View from the Street

Google Street View

For all those worried about the impact of Google Street View on privacy in the UK should try this little exercise.

  1. Bring up Google Maps.
  2. Zoom out so all of the UK is in view.
  3. Pick up the orange ‘human’ icon and hover it near the Sceptred Isle.
  4. Take in all of the country that is highlighted in blue; that’s the parts of the UK available through Street View.
  5. Now do the same for the USA…

Puts things in perspective doesn’t it.
