Google announced Wednesday that the Street View feature of Google Maps is expanded with user photos.The photos are provided by Panoramio.

Panoramio offers photos from major landmarks around the world. When you visit for example Paris you can see user generated photos of the Eiffel Tower or the Notre Dame.

Not only Paris can be visited, also for example New York, San Francisco, Rome, Tokyo, Barcelona, Sydney and New Zealand.

See the video below to find out what you can see.

  • It is interesting to see Google make this step, really it is about time they did and start to tie in all of the pictures they currently have positioned on Google Maps. Looks a bit like a simpler version of Microsoft’s Photosynth which is worth checking out and playing with at Also I would recommend having a look at what I call Super Google Street View which is it shows how advertising can be introduced in the future to street view maps.
