    Default Google camera car

    Just had the Google camera car down the street. Will be interesting how soon it is updated. I have a box hedge by our front door that has been taken out so it will be easy to tell when the new one is uploaded.

    The satellite photo is pretty old as it has the school van parked outside and I retired from that in April 2009.

    Google earth shows my finished house with my truck parked outside as does Google maps, but street view still shows an empty paddock with sheep. So street view has to be at least 5 years old but the sattelite images are less than 18 months

    Google captured me doing some gardening works at my front yard in last year's update!

    Bugger, had I known that I would have been quite happy for you to be captured doing some of my gardening.

    I didn't see a Google car yesterday, and by co-incidence I didn't see it again today.
    To be fair, it is entirely possible that the car I didn't see was not the same one that kenj DID see.
    Entropy is not what
    it used to be.

    Now with the use of Google Maps, the group were able to track down the whereabouts of the Google Street View car in real-time.
