Google has just announced a nice new feature of its Street View service. You know Street View, right? That navigation service whereby you can see real-time images of specific places covered by Google’s roaming vehicle. Now since this vehicle will not be able to cover some hardly accessible areas, thereby rendering them inaccessible via Street View, Google is however doing something to make this possible.
Through the use of user-generated photos which Google is embedding to the Street View layer map of a particular area, you will now be able to explore a particular area similar to other areas which are fully covered by Google vehicle. This will be made possible by two types of orbs which Google is embedding on Street View maps.
In addition Google is also adding a new layer to Google Maps to enable you to get photos using this photo layer.
I was checking this out and it to be really cool. You may not be getting the same interactive elements of Street View, but the panning and zooming feature Â is worthy enough of your time. Â The navigation is seamless and really gives you a logical way of exploring different locations. And you do that via a familiar Street View interface.
