Google Street View coverage maps

I won’t bother reporting that Google Street View launched in Montreal and other Canadian cities today, since everyone else is already doing that.

But I’ll add this map so you can see what areas are covered (sorry Châteauguay, Vaudreuil-Dorion and St. Bruno, it seems you’ve been left out):

To check it out, we’ll start you off in true Gazette style, at the corner of Peel and Ste. Catherine. Now go and find all those embarrassing or quirky photos hidden in the city.

UPDATE: By request, the map for Quebec City:

And while I’m at it:

But before we get ahead of ourselves thinking Canada is cool again, I’ll point out this:

UPDATE: Also spotted my first error: Hutchison St. mislabelled as Durocher St. in Outremont, between Lajoie and Van Horne.

      I must live close to you (and Steve’s old place?) because my house isnt on the Street View either. :(

    The algorithm to blur faces or license plates is not perfect. I saw a car with blurry wheel hubs and one car where you could read many digits on the license plate…

    But it’s a good thing it’s finally here!

    You should start here:

    At least that’s where Google started and stopped. Note that the view at this point is from a parked car, and not from a driving car. If you move back, the cars, the weather and everything else is different than if you move forward. It’s the true origin of Montreal’s Google Street view.

    I just Street Viewed my family home in the West Island on the obscurist of streets, sometime in the summer, I guess. Very weird.

    To David Pinto: Google changes it’s logo for special occasions. Click on it and you’ll see what it’s about.

    No cats in my windows but it’s nice to know that my condo windows do get cleaned.

    No doubt the first of many such sightings, but I can’t help wondering if the Google driver thought to stop and call the fire department:

      Notice something else James? “Go to the left” of that photo, there is a man gardening infront of the house. I don’t think he knows it’s on fire, which is really odd because the van is parked IN HIS DRIVEWAY. If you go further “left”, two houses down there are 3 people coming out of a house wondering what the heck is on fire and why is that man gardening!!?!?!

      That man must have something wrong with his nose for sure to let that fire burn in his own driveway!

    Downtown photos seem to be taken Spring 2009:

    Anyone find an “electronic sign” with a date on it?

    I’M wondering why are people complaining about their privates lifes if the Streetview as your face on it, or your license plate. Are these so dangerous that your life depends on it?

    GStreetViews offers a strange idyllic view of cities where it is always a sunny day and people are frozen in their tracks, often looking at the alien camera device. It recalls an episode of Rod Serling’s Twilight Zone where the main actor was able to move so quickly that all other people seemed to be standing still. My own GSV travels still remain in Canada because there is so much to see before viewing further.
    Hint: pick a roadway that borders a spectacular view and enjoy the natural scenery too.
