Well, the Google Street View (GSV) vehicle has at last been spotted here in Vancouver. If you aren’t familiar with GSV, it’s the feature that shows a street-level view on Google Maps, for certain locations – up to now this has mostly been the US. Now, one or more camera-equipped cars have been spotted prowling the streets of our city, snapping away with their prominent roof-mounted, multi-lensed camera. Although some have an issue with privacy concerns around GSV, I’m in the opposite camp – I’d like to be “captured” by the Google-cam when it reaches my West End neighbourhood! My friend Brian was, down in Castro Valley, California, in front of his parents’ home – it was very cool. To succeed in my quest, I’ll need help to know when GSV is in the ‘hood. So if you spot the Google-mobile, let me know – either email me or, for those of you on Twitter, send a tweet to @cosmocanuck . And hey, if you provide a key tip, I’ll even send you a token of my appreciation. So… keep those eyes peeled! Thanks!
