Google’s photo cars are back on the streets.
10 months after it first launched the New Zealand version of Street View, the search giant is re-photographing Auckland.
The rest of the country will be snapped over summer.
This time around, Google says its 360 degree street-level photos, which are an optional view for most Google Maps locations, will be sharper, and deliver much more detail.
As an example of the enhanced quality, a Google rep points to this snap of Rue St-Sulpice, taken during a similar update of Street View for Montreal. Check out the brick-work detail:
Google says its face blur-out technology will also be enhanced (and if you still don't like the view of you, or your house or car, you can aks Google to remove it).
The new-look Street View, revealed in Google's new New Zealand blog, will go online sometime next year.
