Google Street View Doubles Coverage in the United States

Is Your House on Google Street View?

What a difference a year makes, especially if you are The Google. The monolith says that in 2008 alone, Street View's coverage has more than doubled in the US!

Even my dad's super rural home is now on Street View, to my total shock. I know I've asked you guys before if you had seen your homes on Street View, but many people mentioned that their houses weren't even on yet. Considering yesterday's mass addition to its coverage, I want to know: Is your place on Street View?

This post reminded me to investigate removing the image. Here's the scoop: Find your house. In the lower left of the image (in a light font!) there's a link labeled "Report a concern". This links to a page where you can check off your concerns. Under "Privacy Concerns" it says "This is in reference to an image of" and you choose: a face, my house, or my car/a license plate. (Other options are "Inappropriate content" and "Other".) There's also a text box for an additional description. Hope that helps.

Mine is, and it's really creepy. We had the front door open, just the screen door closed, and you can actually see in the front of the house. Plus, both of our cars are home. You could probably zoom in and read the license plates. Def security problem. There have been complaints.

my apartment building is on street view and the interesting thing is that my unit is on the corner, and you can even see it really clearly if you go down the street :)

my house is on Google street view. I checked a few months back. I think they did it in the summer because my car was parked in the usual place I park it. I kinda wished I could have seen one of my dogs running around the yard though! :( I love Street View. When I'm here in nyc it helps me recognize some of the buildings so I'm not totally lost!

Yes my house is there. I've moved around a lot so my old house in Chicago was there, the Atlanta one you could kind of see, and the Hawaii house I think wasn't there, but the one here in California shows our house and car lol.

You can't see my actual house but it is close enough. Sometimes I feel like this feature is a stalker's dream.

lol fact when they were making it I guess we were moving in because you see the moving van, furniture and my mom and dad standing outside.

I hope not. That feels like a huge invasion of privacy.

My house is in a central neighborhood in San Francisco, so I think it must've been one of the very first to be on Street View 8-) JMichelle, the way Google gets all these images is with a special camera that takes a super fast series of photos. This camera is mounted on top of a van, which drives up and down every street to capture the 'street view.'

I'm a bit surprised but there is no street view for Toronto yet.

My house is on it... It has been for a while. I remember my dad calling me and saying "I can see your house". I thought he had flown to Vegas for a surprise visit until he said he was checking it out on Google's streetview :D

Our old place is on street view - it's a little off to the side from the actual house and it's up a hill so it's not a GREAT view, but its there. :) Our new place doesn't have street view, but that kind of makes sense because I imagine it would be a little annoying to get all of the little apartments in the area. :P

I think I first noticed my house on Streets a year ago (maybe more?). I actually just showed my dad a few weeks ago and he got a pretty big kick out of it. Now how exactly do they get the pictures of all these homes?

My place is but my parent's house is not. They live on a mountain, so im not sure when google will actually make it up there!

Either I'm living in the wrong house or google maps is wrong? haha. They show my house as being the one about 11 houses down from where it actually is. Hmm.. weird.
