Earthmine Cameras Spotted on the Streets of San Francisco

Spotted in the Wild: Earthmine Street View Camera SUVs

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!

I was behind a google maps car on the 5 freeway about a month ago. The little red light was blinking which I assumed meant it was recording but why would they do street view on the freeway?
