Check this out: Virtual Earth Streetlevel
Remember how A9 took a car with a few cameras on it down streets of major cities and let you see what the storefront looked like at a particular address?
Well, we thought that was cool so wanted to take it to the next level.
Virtual Earth Streetlevel.
That link will take you to a Channel 9 video of Streetlevel that shows off what we did (and you’ll meet the team behind it). They took a van with 10 cameras to Seattle and San Francisco (more cities coming soon) and built quite a remarkable AJAX app. Lots of fun. Drive your own car down the streets of San Francisco. Oh, and you can search for the closest Starbucks, too! It’s like playing a video game. Driving through tunnels is a lot of fun!
How many images? Seattle alone is 10 million images. What a database!
