Have you ever considered travelling to a new city and spent time on Google Maps or searching for images of where you will be visiting so you can get your bearings before you arrive? We have!
The Google Street View team explores large cities and give all of us access to amazing 360 panoramic views of places we may be planning to visit. However, as you leave the larger cities it becomes harder to find the same level of detail.
