Google Street View Moves In

Oct 31, 2011


Google launched an interior version of Street View, aimed for small and medium businesses. The pilot program sends a Google photographer to take 360-degree photos, allowing potential customers to walk through a store once the pictures are integrated to Street View on Google Maps.

Business owners can submit pictures that meet Google's criteria, though Google prefers to have photos taken by one of their professionals.

Cities enrolled in the program so far include New York City, Los Angeles, Washington D.C., Boston, Miami, Dallas, Houston, Austin, Baltimore, and Pittsburgh. Google is also taking submissions from businesses in the U.K., Japan, France, Australia, and New Zealand.
