Mapjack have added Pattaya in Thailand to their growing list of cities with street view images. They also have images from San Francisco, Sausalito, Lake Tahoe, Yosemite National Park and Chiang Mai in Thailand.
China have a street view service similar to Google Maps StreetView named City8. It covers 30 cities in China. Unfortunately it’s only available in chinese at the moment but a representative from the company tells StreetViewFun.com that they will soon have an english version.
You can now see street view images similar to Google Maps StreetView at Mapjack from Lake Tahoe and Yosemite National Park. Mapjack have previously added images from San Francisco and Sausalito in the US and Chiang Mai in Thailand.
Images at Mapjack have a much higher quality than the ones available through Googles StreetView. But Google have already images from 30 cities in the US and plan many more.
Have a look at Mapjack’s image collection system. It’s a bicycle! I’m very impressed how lightweight their system is. Getting a power supply, a camera array, a GPS and a computer to fit in that little backpack is no mean feat.
