Viewing the Lowlife on Google Maps

København Con Amore i Street View

No-one has been happier about the recent release of Street View in Denmark than Soren of microformats.dk. We have already featured Soren's Street View & Google Earth Browser tour of Copenhagen, his Street View tour of Istedgade and tour of Denmark's Most Expensive Street.

Today Soren has released a Google Map of Denmark's lowlife. The map is based on the coffee table book 'København Con Amore' by Jokum Rohde & Søren Ulrik Thomsen. The book features 330 photographs of lowlife locations in the Danish capital, including sex shops, lousy hotels and coffee bars.

Soren's map shows 156 of the locations and lets you view the Street View of each one. The numbers in the brackets on the map relate to the photograph number in the original book, so if you own the book you can compare the original photo to the Street View.
