Google Maps Street View Adds Six New Cities

Google has added six more cities to its Street View for Google Maps, which lets you see and browse along street-level photographs taken by a panoramic camera-topped van. They are:

  • Chicago (parts in high resolution)
  • Pittsburgh
  • Philadelphia
  • Phoenix (high res)
  • Portland
  • Tucson (high res)

They also added to Street View the ability to pan upwards in photographs, to gawk at the tall buildings. Jordan McCollum has screenshots of some nice buildings.

Google made this video to promote the new cities, but be warned the song may be painful to, uh, anyone:

If you love the song (why?), go ahead and download it.
