36 Embarrassing Google Street View Sightings

I think #17 is the photo-op in question.
Although #2 and #16 are pretty interesting as well.

Turco, does #31 answer your question?

When I lived in the Midwest I could see the google satellite going overhead on a clear day taking pictures of the area. At night you could see their flash attachment go off as it moved across the sky from east to west.

I read an news article online about LEITH, N.D. Surprised about the news it got me interested in where Leith ND was. Checking google maps it showed they had 16 people living there including kids. Nothing but dirt roads and a few homes, However the google car made a visit to the town and provided "street" views, which blew me away to think that the "street views" were taken of such a small location and especially when it's that remote of an area. Mapping it from the air is one thing but driving that little hi-tech car around there is another. lol

In a few countries, like Lithuania, the Google Car actually went all the way down dirt paths that were uninhabited and nearly undrivable.

In Nunavut, Canada, the Google Camera was pulled by a dog team across a body of water on an ice road.
