Google Street View car spotted in Edinburgh, Scotland

We’ve been getting lots of sightings, by Camvista snoopers, of the current locations that the fleet of Google Street View cars are currently filming around the UK. A BIG thank you to all our Camvista snoopers who are kindly reporting their sightings around the UK and keeping us all fully informed on the progress that Google are making with their new Street View photo-mapping tool.

Today, Friday 15th September, a Google Street View car was spotted at 10.20 am on the main Edinburgh road – Queensferry Road. The Google car wasn’t filming as all the camera equipment, on the roof of the car, was fully covered over. The Google car was in a big hurry, as it nearly drove through red lights on Queensferry Road. Must have been in a hurry to drop of the passengers at Princes street for some Friday morning shopping!!

Google street view car in Edinburgh, ScotlandStill no definate date from Google when they will be launching Street View in the UK. Street View is currently available only for certain locations in the US, France, Italy, Australia and Japan. Word on the street is that Google still hopes to launch Street View in the UK by the end of this year – 2008. From all the Street View Google car sightings that we’ve received, it would appear that many cities and towns throughout the UK will be featured on their new Street View photo-mapping tool.
