hitting the streets

The ‘Sydney Morning Herald‘ reports that Google ‘Street View’ has recently launched Australian street views. It’s interesting to note that some real estate sites have already added Google street views as part of their house listing services.

Here are two of my favourite Google street views applications. First there is the Streetview guide to the route of the Tour De France and StreetView Fun which collects unusual and fun sights seen in Streetview.
