Google Street View coming to South Africa.

Paris-Google Maps Street View

Guess what? You lot are ALL about to be busted getting up to no good and pasted all over the net for the rest of us to mirthlessly mock in perpetuity. Consider yourselves warned...

Google announced today that it has started to collect images in South Africa for Google Maps Street View

Google today announced that it has started to collect imagery in South Africa for the Street View feature in Google Maps. In the coming weeks Google will begin driving around South Africa and taking photographs of locations in Johannesburg, Pretoria, Cape Town, Port Elizabeth and Durban.

The images collected by Google will be processed and stitched, something which according to Google can take several months. This imagery will be made available at a later stage in Street View on Google Maps for South Africa.

The benefits of Google Maps Street View include getting a better understanding of certain locations, helping consumers find businesses and raising awareness of prominent locations in South Africa.

Guess I'm gonna have to stop staggering around chanting / praising / yodelling the awesomeness of Olmeca Tequila at ridiculous o'clock on a Saturday.
