Google have finally launched theirÂ Google Maps Street View service in Ireland. For those of you unfamiliar with this, it is the ability to zoom/pan down to ground level on a Google Map. I have used it once or twice but only really for US-based cities.Â However, it’s a wholly different (and addictive) experience using it to look at my own town, county and country.
The only down-side is that the simply isn’t obvious enough how to jump from a map view to the street view. To do this, you need to navigate to your location on the map view and then click and drag the small, yellowÂ person icon (located above the zoom controls to the left of the map area) to the location on the map that you want to view the street view of.
