Parts Of The World Covered By Google Street View

Google street view was launched in several cities across the United States back in 2007. Since then, the technology has expanded to places around the world, including both rural areas as well as cities. The interesting thing about Google street view is that the cameras are attached to various modes of transportation.

Most of the photography is done by a Google car. But depending on the landscape, some of the employees opt to use a snowmobile, tricycle, or even photograph on foot. There are even boats hooked up with the technology! Still, places like Russia, China, and most of Africa do not have Google Street View.
