Google supposedly used their taxi drivers in bangalore to map the city. And for people who think their vehicle will get lost in the traffic, well guess google would think about it too

I think it was shot before we bought it, because it looks much cleaner

I am not a big fan of "obsessive" lawn maintenance, just do it enough to avoid fines and glares from neighbors. Not because I am lazy or mean, but because I like to avoid chemical pesticides and fertilizers. Trust me, here everything looks so neat because even plants and trees are on steroids.

And once whole India is mapped and up & running, be ready to look at all sorts of funny photos. Can't stop imagining people getting caught spitting pan/gutkha on walls + those who'd pee anywhere, someone stealing petrol from a vehicle, neighbours fighting and throwing chappals at each other, someone putting cycle chain back-on on road side and not to forget local four legged critters. can't wait to explore the plethora of laughter to go online

I saw it today at Martahalli, Bangalore. It was in front of ISRO, Martahalli. It was a Captiva
having a ball like camera on top. I was wondering whether it will pose threat to organisations like ISRO. May be Google have taken permission from government.

They have taken permission from the Police. Dont know if they have even approached the govt for photographing sensitive places.

As sidkun already stated, such a thing long exists (atleast for Bangalore) now.

Why the big fuss about google street ?

I have been using VidTeq for quite a while now.
Apart from some quircky graphics it's actually very good.
Bangalore guys, do check it out please.

Yes I saw one Grey Scorpio with similar mounted cameras in Amritsar on Wednesday 1 June 2011, I think They are mapping the A streets only as it turned back from the Round about on Lawrence road.
