Google streetview is great fun actually! Have spent a good half hour checking out my old neighborhood in LA! Smile

However, as far as privacy goes it's not ideal but most people don't seem to think too much about their credit card usage being screened, that library books borrowed are logged to as well as activities online. I think all mails sent are screened (at least in the US and Sweden) and saved to be checked further if there are particular key words in the mails. The talk of a super datebase in the UK is rather worrying as that would keep copies of all phone calls, text messages and e-mail sent. All of the previous are saved already but by the ISP/mobile providers and not by a central database run by the government (imagine how many sensitive details they'll be able to lose then!) I'm not on top of what exactly the amended Patriot Act does to destroy privacy but let's just face it most citizens of western countries are watched by Big Brother in a greater extent than most people care to know.

The difference between Google streetview and government snooping is that anyone can access Google but only certain government agencies can access your credit card or library borrowing history...

Sorry, my brain is gearing up for academic mode again: question everything! Beware! Confused

Imagine this scenario. There you are chewing the cud with the beautiful wife of your next door neighbour in her halter top over a cooling jug of Pimms in the front garden whilst her violent hubby is grafting at work. Then flash bang wallop, the Google car takes the incriminating picture. Next time it comes round there will be a 'For Sale' sign outside my gaffe and a suit for damages in the post to Googlenosey.

@Red - same applies for them so go ahead and snap those pics. You know you want to Laughing

No, really people do have an exception of privacy in their backyards but if they move into where they can be seen from second story window of a neighbor's then the expectation of privacy is much lower.

Sounds like the start of a great bait: Mugu Maps Very Happy

Get them to catalogue the streets of Lagos for us.

I can foresee a new business venture....
'Google proof tinfoil home enclosure kits!'

Quote:
Surround your home in stylish and durable GOOGLEPROOF tinfoil and never worry about being seen by the world, again! Now you can come out of the basement for good!


If you had really shiny tinfoil, maybe your house would look exactly like the one across the street, if it doesn't already?


What if everybody posted signs in the yard 'Fook Off Google' or 'Google is the tool of the Devil' before the picture was taken? Sure would create a lot of annoying extra work for google, wouldn't it?

I checked out my apartment building. There's a car coming out of the front gate. That gate is "Enter Only." I had a good laugh over that. I also checked out a place I lived in 15 years ago. The house is still there, but the shrubbery needs trimming.

Nifty.

Of course they, like the post office, have my address wrong- I'm on the wrong side of the street according to the numbering plan. Laughing

I think it's great Smile I've just spent the afternoon travelling round Australia looking at all the places my OH used to live. It's probably the nearest I'm going to get, and it gives you a much better idea than just photos can.
It's mind boggling the processing and sheer number of 360 degree photos that go into it - it must cost a fortune.

I think its a cool form of virtual tourism. I've just been to Beverly Hills looking for the Clampetts, then over to NYC, where I wandered around the Bronx without getting mugged.

Finally I went to New Orleans, where they've clearly had a big tidy up since the satellite pictures were taken.

They haven't done my part of the world yet.

It does make you wonder how many rows it has started - What's her car doing outside our house?' etc...

Yes, I believe it was in 1988. What we had to do took a couple of hours then we were out of there. It was a little scary. No one approached us, but the stares and constant watching us was very uncomfortable.

Had Google Street View been available then, I would have refused to make the trip.

I have no problem with photos that were taken from the public street with a standard (non-zoom) lens. What is publicly visible can hardly be considered private... However, some of these photos & the associated zoom levels appear to go well beyond that. Frankly, I am not even sure that taking zoom photos of private property is LEGAL let alone when you put it on the internet in this fashion. That being said, all of the "artwork" around my house for a certain political campaign I was involved in this year has now been preserved by Mr. Google, which amuses me to no end Laughing

The google car looks like an ordinary car with a barbeque on its roof.
To blend in it also has google written on the side

There was one parked near us for a while.

Not sure about all this street view stuff but my house can already be seem from google earth and on map.live .com you can even see my washing hanging out!

Lovely and white so it was, should be sponsored by a soap powder!

I wonder if we can get a lad to photograph the streets in Lagos (house by house) in order to provide them to Google for street view?

New bait modality??????

It's kind of creepy but voyeuristically addictive. It's certainly another sign that privacy is slowly disappearing from modern society. But I'm not too worried -- yet. Like TSnerd's situation, if you try to find my house you'll be a block down the street on the other side. The address they give for my actual house doesn't exist on this street. When I went back to look at the house I grew up in, they placed hte address over a mile west of the real location. So for now it's a gimmick more than a tool, at least for finding a specific address.

I bet real estate agents hate this. Prospective buyers will be able to check out the neighbourhood and see the crack house right next door to the "spacious family home near school and shops" the agent wants to sell them.

It really can be awesome.Using a few details that I remember,I found the house that I lived in as a child,some 43 years after I last saw it.A co-worker and I found a fondly remembered,er -entertainment club he remembered in New York City.The address it indicated was exactly one up from a large address we could read on the buiding next door,so at least in some areas it is accurate.
