  • It just got a lot easier to view Street View imagery. Instead of going to Google Maps and hunting for the area you want to see, just go to Instant Street View, which Google itself has named “Map of the Week”.

    It’s not perfect. Some of the addresses we tried put us in the right vicinity, but down the street a bit, or a couple blocks away. But for the most part, at least in our trials, it does a pretty good job.

    “Instant Street View uses the Google Places Library Autocomplete Service to quickly get the location you’re looking for,” says Google’s Mano Marks. “It uses the Street View Service to display the Street View panoramas.”
