Wow, this is more than a little scary! Our local newspaper recently ran an article on 'street view' on google maps. They reported that people were concerned over the fact that strangers can look up an address, and basically check out your property. Lafayette is one of the cities that this service is available to, Indianapolis is another. Not all cities have been photographed yet, but I am sure that is not far off.
So, I decided to check and see if my property had been done. I couldn't believe the detail! I understand that this is not in real time, (the nearest I can figure the photo's were taken in August of 2007), it is still very 'Big Brother' like. I enjoy traveling around the world with google earth, but this is a whole different ball game!
I am not sure what is next.
(Sorry, I am not real good at links yet, but if you click on the title of this post, it will take you to street view of my property)
