Google Street View Car spotted along EDSA




Earlier today, a Google StreetView car was spotted plying the roads of EDSA, possibly taking 360-degree photos of the main streets.



 

The project could just be in its early stage for Metro Manila but we could be seeing Street View available in the Philippines real soon.

    Probably, all the buses, heavy traffic and probably some crossing civilians in the highway will give the correctly picture of how EDSA look like in 360 street view. :3

  2. I hope Google will also map, local bike trails soon…

    transit time end to end of EDSA via commute, if google really accurately report, should be more or less 3-4hrs, else they doesn’t really measure it, :-)

    Can this car just be carrying advertisement of google street view on its body and not actually photo mapping the metro?

    I dont think they will add yung mga eskenits…kasi if they do, for sure, there are some place, baka di na lumabas ng buhay ang nag street view nun heheheh kung successful naman…baka ilang buwan lang, iba na ulit ang street view…wala na yung daanan nung eskenita at may tindahan nang nakaharang heheheh

    Well this is good news na din para sa mga kababayan nating nasa abroad na namimiss ang manila…they could go around and reminisce :-)

    ano po benefit ng street view. kunyari driver ako ano po ang pakinabang nito sa kin? salamat and sorry for the ignorance

      One benefit ang nakikita ko dito is kapag nagsearch ka sa google maps makikita mo na itsura ng hinahanap mong establishment. Very useful kung di ka familiar sa lugar.

    its a must for google though Manila is major key city in the world, kaya kelangan nila magkaroon ng data sa mga streets and major toroughfare ngmetro manila…the downside, nakupo makikita ang lukot lukot na streets with all those traffic jams and with matching sari sari streets on the side hahaha!!

    Now pa lng ang google nagpaparamdam sa PH, pero si Nokia Maps matagal na. Sila nga ang nag provide ng maps para sa Garmin devices worldwide. Updated rin yun mga maps nila dito sa atin. Alam din nito ng mga Nokia Lumia users. Ang tanong now, sino kaya sa kanila ang mas accurate yun pag pin point ng mga POI’s?
