Google Street View to Ernakulam?!

Google Street View is a technology featured in Google Maps that provides panoramic views from positions along many streets in the world. It’s the best way to explore a city/place in detail.

Google SV was introduced in Mid of 2008 which was a revolutionary move by Google. Basically what they do is drive a Street View Car which have lasers, cameras and GPS built-in. It travels through the city and places and captures “panoramic” images which are then made to a 360-degree view Street View.

Google Street View is not so popular in India, but yet we have major and historical places like Taj Mahal etc.

The latest fire is that Street View to coming to #Kochi!

It was spotted in the “Behind The Scenes” page of Street View that Ernakulam is also shown in the map of “Where is Street View?”. Kochi is said to be the Next Bangalore in India and it’s true. On a high-level zoom we can see it’s overlaid on Pallimukku. There is no official reports or anything about this yet. Hopefully it will happen soon. When street view hits this city it’ll give a new face to Kochi.
