Google Street View

Can someone help me find a Google Street View, please? Isnít there a specific web site for this? I have Google Maps but I donít think thatís the same thing.

Iíd like to browse Street View for something to sketch and paint - global touring on my iPad 🙄!

Re: Google Street View

Do you have Google Earth? In Google Earth in the top left use the search function to find a place - say Italy - when that map opens pick a location- Rome - then zoom to what you want to see - tap the little person on the bottom left and goes into street view

Re: Google Street View

Also in the Palette Talk forum there is a sticky of favorite street view locations.
There is a website called skylinewebcams.com where you can search live webcams. Just grab a screen shot of something if you want to keep an image.

You can certainly access Streetview from maps.google.com.

Re: Google Street View

Thanks everyone. It seems Google Maps/Street View has changed since I last used it and I donít think it is as good. It appears you have to click on one of the photos on the left to go into street view. I donít see a way to show the roads in blue and drop the little man on a location. I think you can only do this in a Google Earth now.

Re: Google Street View

It still works on my street view, but in some locations there is no view available, then I look for the blue dots and I can look around at those spots by dragging the little person to a dot

Re: Google Street View

You need a PC to access all it's features; Map, Streetview, Satellite and 3D-viewer. You go to Satellite view, then theres a small '3D' icon in the corner if your PC and browser supports it. If you want the Streetview it's typically on the Map-view, a little 'yellow man' icon. Pick it and the map then shows blue lines for the streets they have scanned. You pick-slide-and-drop the icon on the map where you want to see.

You can also save pictures of what you're seeing in Steetview.

I use GoogleEarth and GoogleMaps almost daily in my day job, and it's extremely useful. The only odd thing is while it's a Google product, I can't access the 3D-viewer in GoogleChrome browser. I have to use the WindowsInternetExplorer browser to access the 3D-viewer feature.
