Street View Tour of Copenhagen

Kongens Nytorv - KĂžbenhavn

Using the new Street View imagery for Copenhagen microformats.dk has created a really cool tour of Copenhagen. The mashup synchronises the Google Earth browser plugin with Street View to show you 360 degree panoramas in both Street View and Google Earth.

The tour works particularly well because of the extensive 3D buildings available in Google Earth for Copenhagen. To view a location just click on the Google Map. The tour then zooms in on that location in the Google Earth plugin and automatically rotates around the view. A Street View embed also rotates giving you the same view but as seen from the ground.

Since Google refuses to complete the USA due to my bad luck curse then how bout doing *Interior View* where you go inside public buildings that grant permisson for advertising purposes such as the New York Macy's or all the museums in the UK.

Just my 2 cents so if you don't like it can I have my money back?

I've heard a couple of rumours that Google have been collecting Street View imagery inside buildings in the US already.
