It's my personal goal to catch one of Google's Street View vans in action, but this will have to do for now: I caught this Earthmine SUV with the rotating cameras on top instead.
I'd never heard of Earthmine, so I snooped around on their website, and almost dismissed them as a Google Street View copycat until I watched the demo. Watch as you're allowed to zoom in and get panoramic views (the views of being on the Bay Bridge are especially cool), and are also allowed to measure buildings — which puts Earthmine as more of a corporate, specialized tool than for us, your average Joe.
New goal? Get captured by Earthmine's cameras!
