Google Street View – Canberra on the map

By Widdershins 5 August 2008 138

Google has launched its Street View today, with plenty of coverage for Canberra. Haven’t found any pictures of people yet, which is where the controversy comes in, but it’s a bit addictive.

Evidence of Roman occupation in about 400AD after they buggered off from Brittania?

Tempestas 9:18 am 15 Sep 08

Yep freaky mosiac it is.

Better take the blue pill

Jonathon Reynolds 9:01 am 15 Sep 08

Can someone else confirm this street view is a freaky mosiac effect and not an effect of the firewall I’m going through please:

Maybe the Google mapping car ran him over and they’ve deleted the image in an attempt cover their tracks!

“This image is no longer available”

Obviously someone was happy being seen passed out on the nature strip!

Hmmm if you zoom out there’s an unregistered minibike riding on the road!

Yes, and yes.. I was quite chuffed to find it actually

sammy isn’t, but I am. I post under peterh when at work, and peter@home when at home. I don’t have a fictitious name made up, either way it is peter posting, but I can say what I really feel without fear of bluecoat censorship from home.

I notice Dunrossil Drive, the main road up to the Governor-General’s pad in Yarralumla doesn’t have streetview on it.

So, the G-G’s allowed to have his privacy but not the rest of us?

Go to this link. Continue NW two frames on to see the woman pulling out of the Aldi’s carpark at Lanyon take the turn wide across the dotted line. Looks like she almost swiped the Google car and it had to veer left a bit to miss her:

peterh probably just clicked on Sammy’s link with his “friend’s” address in it and went cruising from there.
