Google starts Isle of Man street survey

WEB surfers anywhere in the world will soon be able to log on and view street-by-street images of the Isle of Man. Internet company Google is currently touring the Island taking photographs for its Google Street View site, which gives a pedestrian’s-eye view of towns and cities in the form of a virtual tour.

The vans are expected to be in the Island for a few weeks and images will be downloadable from the Street View website later this year once the complicated process of editing and piecing together the footage is complete. More from IOMToday.
