Street View Updates: Canada, Singapore, South Africa
This morning I notice, thanks to a tip by mapperz, that a number of additional Canadian cities have been added to Street View: Edmonton, Hamilton, London (Ontario), Saskatoon, St. John’s, Sudbury, Winnipeg, Victoria. The cities surrounding Toronto are also in Street View (e.g., Markham, Mississauga, Oshawa, Vaughan), but I don’t know whether that was done when Toronto was added two months ago. Some cities I can confirm are not on Street View: Barrie, Cambridge (Ontario), Fredericton, Guelph, Newmarket, Niagara Falls (Ontario), Regina, Saint John (New Brunswick), St. Catherines, Thunder Bay, Windsor.
Mapperz reports that Singapore is now also on Street View.
Meanwhile, Google’s cars are collecting images in South Africa, presumably for a launch next year; the usual crime-related freakouts ensue. Via Peter.
Update, 11:30 AM: Google says nine Canadian cities: add Nanaimo and Sherbrooke (Quebec) to the above; was Hamilton announced before this? See also Google Maps Mania and Mapperz on today’s Street View updates, which include several tourist sites in the U.K.
Update, 3:20 PM: Google LatLong roundup of all Street View updates.
