Google ads 30 Dutch cities to Streetview

Google Streetview is slowly but surely capturing all of Europe. In the Netherlands the service was launched in March with 'only' big cities like Amsterdam, Rotterdam and Groningen. Now they've added over 30 cities and surrounding areas.

Google has paid extra attention to the 'special places', the historical ones, like the Binnenhof, where the Dutch Parliament is seated, and Kinderdijk, where windmills are placed. These two places are also the first ones shot by the Streetview Trike.

There are only a few images shot by the Streetview Trike available. Google is working on getting the other ones in there too, but hasn't set a date for that yet.
