Shamu and Stonehenge Now On Google Street View

In the past I’ve written about the possibilities of using Google’s Street View imagery in virtual tours. Today, Google announced the addition of some great new imagery that is accessible in Google Maps Street View which opens up even more virtual tour possibilities. Some of the new imagery is of cities in Canada and parts of Singapore. Other aspects of the new Street View imagery include Street View imagery of all three Sea World parks in the United States. The new Street View imagery also includes tourist destinations in the UK such as Stonehenge.

Visit the Google LatLong Blog to see more examples of the new imagery available in Street View.

Applications for Education
Street View imagery can be a great resource for students to use to create their own virtual tours of places and regions. Google Maps are also great for students to go on virtual tours of places that they might not have a chance to visit in person.
