Google Street View, coming to a city near you?


Google Maps Street View offers 360° panoramic street-level views of just a few American cities but that may change soon. A fleet of Chevy Cobalts mounted with camera-ready vertical extensions were photographed recently in the parking lot of Google headquarters in Mountain View, Calif. The outfitted Cobalts, in addition to Google-owned VW Beetles and vans, have been spotted in Boise, Idaho; Chicago; Whitemarsh, Maryland; Southern California; Evanston, Illinois; and Redwood City, California. If Google is indeed documenting these cities, they will join Denver, Las Vegas, San Francisco, Miami and New York in the Street View network.

There is no official word from Google on whether these cities are actually next in line for the Street View treatment or when Street View become an embeddable application.
