I wanted to let you know that today we made some changes to Street
View that makes it easier to use. Here are some of the main changes to
help you get started:
- Instead of clicking on "Street View" at the upper right-hand corner
of the map, you can now click the yellow "Pegman" that now appears at
the top of the zoom slider on the left, and drag him onto the map to
see Street View imagery where it's available. Simply drop him in any
blue area to see imagery.
- When looking at a Street View image, you'll notice a mini-map in the
bottom right-hand corner. You can expand this map to enter split
screen mode, which will allow you to navigate around the map while
seeing Street View imagery at the same time.
- To navigate within an image you can still click and drag the image
itself. However, now you can also use the navigation control arrows in
the upper left-hand corner and also rotate the image using the scroll
- You can easily report an image by clicking on the "Report a concern"
link that appears on each image.
