Google Maps Street View: Launched for Hong Kong

By Jamie Pert - Mar 16, 2010

As you are probably aware Google are doing their best to cover as much of the World as possible with their Google Maps Street View, we are now hearing that they have added Hong Kong and Macau to their covered areas.

For those of you who are unaware Street view allows users to see a 360-degree view of locations all over the World, when you use the service you see real photographs of the locations you are looking at.

If you would like to check out this new addition check out Google Maps Hong Kong, simply zoom in and drag the orange pegman over the area you want to see in “street view”.

As you can imagine street view will eventually cover pretty much every populated area on Earth, despite some security concerns this service is generally supported, as we hear of more areas that are covered we will keep you posted.
