More StreetView locations in France

As reported by Google Maps Mania, France has just received a bunch more StreetView imagery to go with the Tour de France imagery they already had.

It appears the new cities include:


  • Lille
  • Lyon
  • Marseille
  • Nice
  • Paris
  • Toulouse
Areas of some of those cities were already in there from the Tour imagery, but the coverage is much better now.  Go see what kind of cool stuff you can find (Keir has already pointed out landmarks such as Notre Dame and the Louvre) and submit your findings to the GEH StreetView database.

Streetview goes international!

As reported by Google Maps Mania and Google Earth Blog, StreetView has arrived in France!  It’s not a lot of imagery — mostly along the Tour de France route, but it’s quite cool nonetheless.

Go check it out for yourself, and then post your cool discoveries in the GEH StreetView archive.
