More Russian 'Street View'


Yesterday I linked to Russian search engine Yandex's online map service, which has a street view type service for Moscow. In the comments to that post someone pointed out that NORC also has a map with panoramic imagery for Moscow.

NORC uses Google Maps as the means to navigate around the 'street view' type panoramas. Unfortunately NORC does not have links within each panorama, so you can't use arrows to jump to the adjacent image. Instead you have to drag the map marker to the location you want.

NORC also doesn't seem to have quite as much coverage in Moscow as Yandex. However it does have some stunning panoramas of Russia's capital.

NORC does not have links within each panorama, but it has arrows in the lower right corner so you have not to drag the map marker to the location you want and you can use the arrows.
Moreover, on street view is not only for Moscow but also for other cities in Russia - Vladimir, Kostroma, Kolomna, Pereslavl-Zalessky and many other.

Do you know how long ago the street view was removed from Russian cities? Google is fighting a bunch of legal battles with other countries (Russia included) regarding privacy issues with their street view technology.
