95% of Britain covered by Google Street View

11 March 2010

Somewhere interesting, in Britain

95% of Britain is now on Google's Street View. Y'know? That's the thing where you can zoom right in on your house and coo "Oooh! I left the window open when they passed little important me!"

Google Maps is, of course, a very useful tool (to be perfectly honest, I don't know how I managed to find anywhere at all without it) yet, there are privacy issues. Some rags have talked about how it could be rather useful to burglars... but in fairness, the fact that you're at work most of the time, they could probably walk around your property and scope it out in a much more effective way.

Yeah. Someone's probably doing that right now whilst you scratch your arse with a biro at work.

So, now that Britain is pretty much covered completely, have a rummage around and see if you can catch any blokes sneaking out of lapdancing clubs, nudey sunbathers or someone cottaging in a park. Get cracking too because Google announced that it might have to cancel the Google Street View service in the EU due to unmanageable requests of the European Commission.

The Register have a got some mash-up map thing that shows where the GoogleMobiles have been which you can see here.

    "The Register have a got some mash-up map thing that shows where the GoogleMobiles have been" Surely they've been pretty much everywhere? After all, I read somewhere that 95% of Britain is covered by Google Street View!

    I can see someone at my work taking a fag break chatting up a bird.
