Street View Type Map for Buenos Aires


Fotocalle have released a Street View type service for Buenos Aires, Argentina. The site stitches together a number of interactive 360 degree panoramas of the city. The panoramas, just like Street View, include links to adjacent panoramas.

Fotocalle uses Google Maps as a navigation tool. Again like Street View the roads on the map with panoramas are coloured blue and it is possible to drag the map marker to view the panorama at a location.

Fotocalle use Nikon Cameras with Segways and cars to capture their panoramas. Unlike Street View they also provide interior interactive photos of to connect the outside with the inside of buildings.

Very sad... Two years later and they still haven't expanded the service beyond a couple of streets only around Puerto Madero! It's also extremely difficult to find the actual product itself. Hope the folks at Google Argentina get off their butts and start work on Argentina Street View soon!
