Google Adds 250,000 Miles of Street View Imagery to Google Maps

Browsing Google Maps Street View is one of my favorite ways to virtually explore the world. Browsing Street View imagery provides a prospective that I generally can't get by flipping through printed images or looking at flat maps. Yesterday, Google made 250,000 more miles of Street View imagery available. The new imagery includes new views of tourist attractions, historical landmarks, parks, and city centers. New imagery can be found for locations in Macau, Singapore, Sweden, the United States, Thailand, Taiwan, Italy, Great Britain, Denmark, Norway and Canada. There is also some new imagery in special collections in South Africa, Japan, Spain, France, Brazil and Mexico.
