Google No Longer Shooting Street View Pics in Germany
Apr 11, 2011 11:33
Despite recently winning a battle in a German court in March, Google has decided they will no longer be shooting Street View pics of Germany. A Google spokesperson has announced that it has other priorities than driving around and taking these pictures:
Our business priority is to use our Google cars to collect data such as street names and road signs to improve our basic maps for our users in a similar way that other mapping companies do.
It's speculated that one of the reasons it decided to nix the project was the blurring of pictures for buildings requested by German citizens, the number of which is pushing 250,000 at the moment and growing ever larger. Since different countries have various privacy laws, Google will let anyone in the world opt out of Street View if they so desire.
