Google Debuts Street View and Mapplets

PotatoPhysics Re:Immersive Media and Street Views (157 comments)

The San Francisco data is copyright 2007 Google. The Immersive Media imaging system is currently slightly
lower resolution but we also are taking one shot every 4 inches (30fps) of travel rather than every 100
feet. I do not think that the resolution difference will be permanent feature. All it takes is development
time, money and a whole lot of storage.

competitors from all over Canada to compete before crowds and Discovery Channel Canada broadcast it live to the web. There was also a cool 360-degree panoramic video camera there and you can see archived video from it at http://robotics.immersivemedia.com/
The regular non-360 webcast will be available here directly
