Google Maps was already pretty great, with comprehensive Street View coverage in countries around the world, but it just got a little bit better thanks to the 'biggest Street View update ever', which is rolling out today.

Street View coverage has now been increased in no fewer than 11 countries, including the U.S., Britain, and Canada, with over 250,000 miles of roads being updated and added.

The number of special collections, which allow you to see tourist attractions in countries all over the world on Street View, has also been doubled, with new locations added in South Africa, Japan, Spain, France, Brazil, Mexico, and more. These spots include parks, such as Stanley Park in Vancouver (above), as well as city centers, and other tourist attractions.

If you want to check out any of the new locations available on Street View, you see them on the Google Maps website, or go straight to the places that are mentioned in Google's blog post.
