Google Street View Singapore Officially Launched

google-street-view-singapore

Google Street View has arrived in Singapore! We are the first in Southeast Asia to have a virtual street guide based on photographs.

Google Street View is currently available in United States, United Kingdom, Czech Republic, France, Italy, Mexico, the Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, Switzerland, Canada, Japan, Taiwan, Singapore, Australia, and New Zealand.

Google Street View camera cars were spotted in the streets of Singapore in October 2008. The technology by Google allows users to view and navigate 360-degree street-level imagery, including the country’s most iconic sights.

In areas where Street View is available, you can access street-level imagery by zooming into the lowest level on Google Maps, or by dragging the orange “Pegman” icon on the left-hand side of the map onto a blue highlighted street.

You can check out a restaurant before arriving, make travel plans, arrange meeting points, get a helping hand with geography homework, or just explore and get to know Singapore better. The coolest way to use Street View is on smartphones so users can do all of this fun stuff on-the-go, anytime, anywhere.

Any user can easily flag images for removal that he or she considers inappropriate by clicking on “Report a problem” on Google Street View Singapore. But,  faces and licence plates are blurred out in Google Street View Singapore, and one can see what already is visible on public roads. Isn’t that interesting to see faces? Disappointed?

How to Use Google Street View Singapore

  1. Navigate to your desired location
  2. To view street-level imagery for a specific location, click and drag the icon (on top of zoom bar) to the location you want. Roads with street-level imagery available appear with a blue border.
  3. A street-level view appears for this location with an overview map in the bottom right corner of the view. A movable Pegman icon appears in the overview map.

    They don’t really give you the good results you are expecting and you might experience their negative side effects. There are real natural face moisturizers on the market; you just have to know what to look for. Unfortunately many facial creams on the market, even the expensive, ones contain mineral oils.
