Google’s Street View Website Gets Revamped

After unveiling its lovably dinky trike a few weeks ago, Google Street View has updated its homepage to give users a behind-the-scenes peek at how the Street View team operates.

This added transparency is not without reason, as Google Street View continues to be mired in controversies around the globe concerning privacy. The new site makes it easier to see where Google’s team has taken to the streets, and also features a section on the team’s methods and how they address privacy concerns.

But all the legal stuff aside, the best part about the new site is the neatly organized gallery of notable places on Street View. It’s an addictive and easy way to explore UNESCO World Heritage Sites like Versailles or remote places like Half Moon Island in Antarctica.

So if you excuse me, I’m going to go back to exploring Manana Island, Hawaii.
