I expect it to cause plenty of controversy. A lot of people will be horrified to think their houses and possibly even themselves or their family are on google streetview – for the world to see. It’s important to look at the bigger picture though…

I use streetview ALL the time when preparing to go away on trips. Maps and sat navs are one thing, but it’s another story when it comes to roundabouts, various lanes, junctions etc… streetview helps me to drive roads virtually, thus it saves me time and hassle when i go to drive them in the real world for the first time. It’s also nice to see hotels and the surrounding areas before you book them. Or businesses, or shopping centers, or landmarks…
