Google Maps - Street Level Awesome Pictures.

First Google had the street map
Then they had the satellite map
Then they have the Hybrid map (mixture of the street map and satellite
Then they had the traffic reports

Now comes the street level maps.

Which is a ground view of streets and it gives you 360 degree views of a street. You can check out
Times Square in New York, The Strip in Vegas or the Golden Gate Bridge in San Fran. Or even Eureka Drive in Florida, that's right Eureka Drive!!! (Eureka Drive isn't that special but I wanted to point out that every street can be viewed

How did they do it? Well a car drove around with some fancy cameras and went street by street around certain cities in the US. There are many sites around now with cool images that have been captured here are just a few of them>
