Street View Page on [Country/Region]


Google Street View is available through Google Maps and Google Earth and provides panoramic views along many streets in the world. It was started in 2007 in the United States and has since expanded to include a large number of countries. Some countries have objected to this form of data gathering and have not allowed Google to take the imagery. Available Street View imagery available is shown as blue lines on Google Maps once the so-called pegman has been activated. Images are most often taken by car but a variety of other modes of transport have been used. Once captured, the images are subsequently stitched together. In some areas, Street View images are augmented by privately-done photospheres.

3 Google Maps Streetview Player

The Google Maps Streetview Player tool stitches Google's panoramic street view data into a short GIF movie. At the top of the page, you can enter the start and end location of your trip. As you click Play, the route is marked on the map to the right and the images will load and start playing. If alternative routes are available, they can be selected from a table below the map. You can control the method of travel, and the pace of the timelapse. If you enjoy the views, you can download the images as an animated GIF movie using the option circled below. These files can be quite large so keep the route short. You'll need to use FileZilla to upload because the file will be larger than can be uploaded by the Online File Manager.

4 Moore's Where to Invade Next

Moore's documentary is politically polarizing. Conservative columnists, such as Armon White, are sharply critical of the movie. Putting aside politics, what can the movie show us about the value of travel in understanding our own country.
