StreetView

Google announced today the addition of over 1,000 new Street View locations to Google Maps, which are sure to make the upcoming revamp an even more immersive experience. The new locations include the usual tourists attractions such as historical landmarks and sports stadiums. Americans who are still a little queasy at the thought of hopping on a plane can tour the Singapore Zoo from their living room sofa. Other Singaporean attractions include the Marina Bay Waterfront Promenade and the Fullerton Heritage Promenade.

Sinpapore

Not interested in Asia? You're now free to take a virtual tour of the most visited Marian shrine in the world, Brazil's Basilica of the National Shrine of Our Lady Aparecida. The Valle Nevada Resort in Chile is a popular ski resort located just a few miles outside of Santiago and is now accessible from any computer with even a spotty connection. Over in Europe, the Spanish Seville Cathedral has made the virtual transition along with the canals of Copenhagen, Demark.

Brazil Denmark

These locations and thousands more can be viewed from either your computer or any of your Android devices. At this rate, it's only a matter of time before Google runs out of exciting places to capture and switches over to the mundane. Don't be surprised if that old church up the roads gets added next.

    I just want them to send another car around my area. We were a part of the first wave of maps in Philadelphia. But the quality of the new Streetview locations is like 1000x better! I would love a simple refresh of some popular areas they already have done.

      Just give them some time to circle back. They are trying to map the entire Earth and all :-)

    Oh my god....

    Dear Mr Writer, the country is Chile, the vegetable is Chili... please a little more respect.

      I have a special talent for making typos that spell checks can't catch. Thankfully, most of my previous ones weren't public. This offending mistake has now been fixed. My apologies.
