Google Street Views Adds 9 Canadian Cities

Online Innovation December 3rd, 2009


Google Street Views Adds 9 Canadian CitiesA few months ago, Google released it’s ‘Street View’ tool in Canada, allowing users 360 degree views of neighbours and streets in various locations across Montreal, Toronto, and Vancouver.

Today, the search engine giant released nine more cities in to Street View across Canada. It is now possible to view street level images of Edmonton, Saskatoon, Winnipeg, Sudbury and London in Ontario, Victoria and Nanaimo in BC, Sherbrooke in Quebec, and St. John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador.

In an earlier post about the Toronto release of Google Street View, DJ addressed how ‘Street View’ works and some of the benefits it brings as part of the Google suite of search tools, as well as issues people had with privacy.  In simple terms, there is nothing here in Street View that someone could not see were they walking along on the sidewalk or driving down that particular street.

People will always have issues with invasions of privacy, and the addition of ‘Street Vie’w can sometimes feel like it’s being invaded. But that is far from the truth.

If the user comments on the CBC story about the new Street View cities are anything to go by, the general public seems to be more understanding of what the service does and how it affects them (or how it doesn’t affect them, really).

Oh, and in case you were wondering (and a number of people still believe this myth) – ‘Street View’ is not live! These are static photographs, not a web cam feed.

Now, having found a family member in the Toronto ‘Street View’, I’m off to find more of my relatives across the country!
