Google Street View in Canberra?

By lobster - 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?

What’s Your opinion?

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

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.

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.

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

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?

he he he…+1 They took the Google pic of my bogan Kambah home just after I bought it…I hadn’t even had the chance to de-boganise it yet!!! Would love an updated photo.

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

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

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 😉
