Google street views around the world is a really interesting and beneficial feature. We own property right near the Baltic Sea in Latvia. We wanted to get a different 3D style view of the property and the surrounding land and homes. I have photos that we have had taken of the property and where it is in relation to the waterfront. It is considered waterfront property in Latvia because you can not build directly on the water any more. So there is a short path to the beach from our property.
We discovered that Google street cars have been down our road! We were able to place our little person marker, step down on the street and walk up to our property and all around the surrounding streets in a very clear and consise way. I was very impressed. Here we are in Florida virtually walking our beach front property in Jurmala Latvia!!!
The clarity is amazing! The only thing missing is the smell of the pine trees and the sound of the sea. I am sure that is all coming along one of these days too!
