Google have now release streetview for 23 cities in the UK,  only five months after we first included Seety’s excellent <a href="http://www.earthware.co.uk/blog/index.php/2008/10/london-uk-street-level-views-now-live-but-not-from-google/" target="_blank">London street views</a> in our <a href="http://www.earthware.co.uk/products/property/property-maps/default.aspx" target="_blank">EarthwareProperty</a> product ;-)

<a href="http://earthware-website.azurewebsites.net/Content/images/wp-images/2009/03/londonstreetview.jpg"><img style="display: inline; border-width: 0px;" title="london streetview" src="http://earthware-website.azurewebsites.net/Content/images/wp-images/2009/03/londonstreetview-thumb.jpg" border="0" alt="london streetview" width="404" height="270" /></a>

The cities current covered are:

<ul> <table border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="2" width="400"> <tbody> <tr> <td width="200" valign="top"> <li>London</li> <li>Bristol</li> <li>Norwich</li> <li>Liverpool</li> <li>Southampton</li> <li>Birmingham</li> <li>Oxford</li> <li>Derby</li> <li>Nottingham</li> <li>Cambridge</li> <li>Manchester</li> <li>Sheffield</li> <li>Scunthorpe</li> </td> <td width="200" valign="top"> <li>York</li> <li>Leeds</li> <li>Bradford</li> <li>Coventry</li> <li>Newcastle</li> <li>Cardiff</li> <li>Swansea</li> <li>Belfast</li> <li>Glasgow</li> <li>Edinburgh</li> <li>Dundee</li> <li>Aberdeen</li> </td> </tr> </tbody> </table> </ul> <span style="font-family: trebuchet ms;">This is a great achievement from Google and it will be interesting to see what UK companies start to do with this new imagery. It looks like Google have spent a lot of time sorting out the privacy images by blurring faces and registration plates etc. Here at Earthware we are waiting on Google to announce some way of adding information on top of street view images.</span>
