More Sites Add Google Maps Street View

Australian property website domain.com.au have reacted quickly to the launch of street view in Australia by adding the panoramic imagery to their site functionality. The Google Map showing the location of the property and the street view appear on the property details page.

When you are looking at potential houses on-line it is useful to be able to scope out locations with street view. Not only can you get a quick preview of the property but you can take a virtual stroll around the neighbourhood.

StreetAdvisor has also reacted quickly to the Australian launch of street view. StreetAdvisor is a community sharing website where residents can rate the streets that they live in. The site carries ratings for neighbourly attitudes, noise levels, traffic problems etc.

Now it is also possible to check out the street in Google Maps street view.

French real-estate search engine Immobilio is the first European site to add Google street view. So if you are looking to buy a property in France you can now view prospective properties in Google Maps street view (where available).

So it's great that they added street view for such cities as New Orleans and Baton Rouge, LA. But the maps themselves ares still horribly out of date, as are the satellite views. I can see my house on Google Street View, yet the neighborhood I live in and the street I live on do not exist on Google Maps. C'mon folks, can you, can you, can you update us? It's been at least three years on the satellite view because Walk-Ons, the famous LSU hangout near campus isn't even on the view, and it was there long before Katrina hit, almost three years ago.

Google Streetview can add a new dimension to listing property - check out http://www.housesell.com.au and see the google streetview integration into the property listings. User grab Iframe code from thhe maps.google.com website and paste it into their listing details.
