I am supposed to be writing a paper but I came across something more interesting. Google has now started including "streetviews" to their maps that allows you to view New York City 360 degrees from street level. I think it is very interesting use of photography and relates directly to the landscape class. Google is creating a unique social document of New York City, and it will be interesting to see it evolve and to eventually look back at it as a record. I think google is determined to photograph everything on earth

i've actually used this a little bit to find out about areas in the city before i head out to them. i just wish the pictures were a little better quality (but is that really wanting too much?)
