Google Street View in Canberra?

By 10 November, 2009 19

Was driving home yesterday afternoon and I am 90% sure that I saw a Google Street View car driving through the intersection of Baldwin and Ginninderra Drive Just outside Kaleen.
Anyone else seen it or know what the go is?

It was there to indicate your opportunity to bare your ass at the camera as it went past. You missed it.

It means that for the next few years we can check out the corner of Baldwin Dr and Ginninderra Dr in Street View and see your vacant slack-jawed stare ;)

OMG! Thanks for the heads up. My house looks so crap on Google street view atm. Do you think us “Tuggy Thuggies” have enough time to fix our front gardens up before we get google street viewed again?

Sage words – My vote for the 2009 “Roity” awards for online journalism!

Gee, when the new pics go up we can look at them for a few minutes then never bother with them again.

It didn’t appear to have any signage on it… And it was relaly quick that it went past – But I believe it was a black corolla-ish looking thing with the gear on it’s roof.

I came across a Navteq 4wd driving around the city within the last couple of months too. It looks very similar to the street-view car, but has navman/navteq logos on it instead of google and had same sort of imaging equipment on the roof.

Just make sure you’re not caught walking out of certain establishments in Fyshwick or Mitchell at an inopportune moment. :)

I saw on the news the other night that they were doing a report on every Sydney street being re-done. They showed the car; it was white, it had the Google logo printed over it and a huge post on the top with 8 (I think) cameras pointing out in every direction, I think it was a Holden Barina but I’m not sure, I wasn’t paying much attention. Also Google might use a different car for Canberra than they do for Sydney.
