Thread: Streetview Ireland

  1. #1

    Default Streetview Ireland

    Looks like Google is launching Streetview for Ireland tommorow (30th Sept)

    via Adrian Weckler (adrianweckler) on Twitter


    Oops! Apparently I shouldn't've tweeted that. It's embargoed. But Google only picked a couple of hacks to tell. I wasn't one of em. Oh well.

    So Google is to launch Streetview in Ireland tomorrow?

    Great stuff...

    Maybe I can find that car I lost last year
    We need to radically change every system that has enabled the wholesale destruction of the Irish landscape, rural and urban. There is no time for incremental step by step measures. The systems have failed utterly and the only hope for a real recovery requires the rule book to be torn up completely.

    sounds like a bit of a wishy washy source. Isn't all that privacy legal mumbo jumbo still going on?

    well he is the tech editor of the sunday business post, so he's bound to have some hack contacts who probably tipped him off.

    its a credible source.

    NUI Galway had this on their facebook page:
    Virtual 3D Galway | socialmedia.net - Navigating New Horizons

    It's not quite the same thing as google.

    Good news re streetview, but Google still don't show the current motorways to Waterford, Cork, Limerick, Galway, Kells (M3) or Newry. So, its got some catching up to do.

    great news if it's true, it'll make things so much handier. Also I notice that google can't seem to keep up with the rate of motorway completion in Ireland at the min. But the streetview will most likely only cover urban areas anyway.
