Google ties business listings to StreetView

Google has just released a nice evolutionary trait to Google Maps — linking businesses to StreetView.

When searching for a business in Google Maps, you’ll now often see a link for “StreetView” in the description bubble.  Clicking that takes you to a StreetView of that location.  When in StreetView, you’ll see the familiar red placemark icon, which is even clickable.  Better yet, it’ll show your other placemark icons in StreetView as you pan around.

What I’d like to see now is a way to show ALL markers on the map while in StreetView.  It’d be nice to be able to move around in there and have everything clearly identified.  I imagine that’s on the list of things to come.

The video below shows a bit about how this new feature works:
