Google Earth’s Street View: Service for burglers

By Updated on

There has been much debate over Google Earth’s Street View – which we covered in a recent poll – and a recent survey suggests that it is just a “service for buglers”. In a separate poll taken out by myvouchercodes.co.uk user felt that Street View was intrusive – this is the opposite of what our readers thought.

Their survey went on to interview 1,317 people – of which 57 percent said Google’s service was “intrusive”, while 24 percent gave the quote that we mention in our first paragraph. One of the things that have angered people the most is the fact that they were not asked for these images to be published.

The Telegraph does report that there is a positive side to Google Earth’s Street View – saying that the expansion of the amount of roads covered in Britain, which we covered in an article yesterday was seen as a positive move.

Google have said that they take privacy extremely seriously, and say that they have made it very easy for a user to request that an image be removed. For more information on this visit The Telegraph.

    Maybe one of those paranoid people suffering from "Service for burglar" syndrome, can tell me what a burgler could see on 'Street view' that he coulkd not see by walking past your house? And be up to date also, and not a year or so behind?

    Google Street View is a fantastic piece of New Technology allowing ‘Real Estate Agents’ to give a more accurate description of the area, and for the potential client to search from the comfort of their armchair.

    Would you sooner discover before you buy a property if there were any bad aspects to the area in question rather than find out after you have bought the property?

    Simply by doing a combined search using Google Street View and Google Earth you can discover many bad things as well as good things such as areas of land set aside and protected as areas of Scientific Interests.. I found a most beautiful countryside park whilst using both of these systems.

    There’s far more plus factors than the same old boring alleged service for burglars.

    As for Google Street View to discover a child naked on any street proves only one thing, a positive identification should now lead to a parent being prosecuted for allowing this child out undressed and without adult supervision. Well done Street View.

    Don't blame Street View prosecute the parents.
