Exclamation Google Maps - now with StreetView in Chattanooga

This is very cool...now you can do a map search for specific addresses or neighborhoods and get a street-view. You can literally walk down the street and see everything as it is.

Here's a view Market Street near the bridge and the Aquarium: http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&hl=e...818205302,,0,5


And here's our house....umm...wait....never mind

Everyone can now take a tour of downtown and see the stuff we're talking about.

Default Neat, But . . .

So we cruised all of our out-of-town relatives' homes that we've never seen, coworkers places, friends' houses. It felt a little dirty to do a virtual drive by, and I'm not sure I like the idea that it's probably happening to us too . . . I know these pictures are taken from public spaces but this kind of thing means if you aren't locked in your house, you could be recorded. . . .

But even in your house it looks like it can be a concern as well. This is neat but I think I'd rather it didn't exist!

Default This is cool!

This is very cool...I learned about it about a month ago and so far I have ruled out several houses because when I checked out the surrounding area, it doesn't look so good. This is an awesome tool! The only thing is, some smaller towns aren't available yet...darn!
