Google refreshed their Street View overview site that puts everything you wanted to know about Street View in one place. Google said “intitially they used vans to capture images, but later replaced by cars and tricycles. Our current platforms include nine directional cameras for the 360° views, a GPS unit for positioning and laser range scanners. We design and engineer the Street View platforms to be simple and require minimal manufacturing resources. This approach facilitates the ability to be up and running in a short period of time and allows us to quickly scale and get our vehicles on the road around the world.”
