Street View by Google (No, you're not paranoid. Somebody is watching.)

What a great tool for stalking research.

Google Maps now offers something called Street View, or actual photographs of the buildings and activity on a given street, though not in real time.

The geographic areas covered are pretty limited . . . for the moment.

(Signing off now. Must find tinfoil helmet.)

Now we "can" actually write about things and places we know nothing about. That old creative writing teacher got it wrong.
Hey, Harry! I can see your house from here!
Do they say how old the images are? I mean, I know the copyright says 2007, but I just went to my neighborhood and saw that the images have to be at least a couple of years old... my neighbor's garage is not there (built 2-3 years ago) and one of the community centers is (torn down about 2 years ago). Can't say I'm too worried!
Very cool! I saw some great shots of Miami. Now, if they'd just add Hawaii I'd be totally set.
