StreetView now available in Sweden

Articles Lokaldelen · 1 comment

You can now view images from several cities in Sweden in a new similar service to Googles StreetView. Lokaldelen has created 360 degrees panorama images of a couple of cities. They have named this service Streetview. I’m not sure what Google will think of this…

Unfortunately only the main shopping streets are covered so far. I haven’t found a way to link directly to an image. This is the old town (Gamla Stan) in the capital Stockholm. Images are also available from the center of some other swedish cities like Halmstad, Helsingborg, Kalmar, Karlskrona, Lund, Malmö and Växjö.

Stadshuset in Stockholm, Sweden

A similar service to Googles StreetView has opened up in Stockholm, Sweden today named Gatubild (hitta means find). MapJack made the panorama images so I guess it could be available soon through their site aswell. Unfortunately I haven’t yet found a way to link directly to images. 2 million images were taken in June until September 2008 during mostly sunny days. The 2 cars who did this drove 1200 km in and around Stockholm city.

Update: It’s now possible to link directly to images. (thanks Ben)
