[UPDATE] Google Street View Now Availabe in Antarctica

Postby nakatago » Wed, 02 Dec 2009 1:08 pm

I tried this out and yup, it's there alright.

I wonder if I carry a sign or wear a shirt with "robots.txt," will I appear in Street View? Ditto for your house. :P :P :P

Nice panoramic view of my home :) Family in UK will be pleased, though the pics are a little out dated over 6 months old, becuase the tree i planted isn't there :cry: maybe next time :)

"Remember to make a left turn when you see a man in a red shirt and blue baseball cap. Then you'll run into a silver Toyota Corolla. My house is the one with the one with the lady with a green umbrella in front."

Makes for very interesting directions. :D

If you pan upwards you will notice that the photos tend to blur out. Guess that's what happens when you live up so high on the pedestal in society, you cannot even be seen by Google Earth. You must be living out of this world! :lol:
