Australian streets getting viewed by Google again

    Google Street View

    Google maps and more specifically street view in Australia is about to get an upgrade. Next month the street view cars will be back on our streets in force, snapping updated photos of Australia.

    When street view first launched one of my biggest questions was how Google would deal with the currency of images. With photographing each street being such a massive undertaking, they could be excused for leaving the current batch of images up for years.

    After launching in August last year, Google are sending their fleet to “Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Canberra, Adelaide, Perth and parts of Tasmania”.

    The new Australian imagery will be available sometime within the next year..
