Street View 2021

Post by marymary »

The last time Google came through the village they covered up the house numbers, licence plates and faces. They came through again a couple of weeks ago and house numbers are now on show although the other things are still blurred out.

I wonder why, especially as the number they are saying it is is still inaccurate.


What’s it like where you are?

We have used close ups of street view images to find house numbers for christmas cards
Yes this is the real "Little John" (or it could be "colin whose birthday is the day after mine)

Ok. Maybe it’s just that we haven’t been updated for a long time. The old version for our village had my mum’s car in their driveway and she’s been dead for seven and a half years so maybe done around 9 years ago.

A street view of my home also shows a car and caravan that I have not had for many years, too.
Of course I'm athletic, I SURF the internet daily!

Google Streetview haven't found our house yet :lol: , but looking at my parents' house, they haven't blurred out the name plates like they used to do before.
They seem to come every year. They blurred number plates and name plates until 2015, then from 2016, only the number plates are blurred.

Ours was last updated a few years ago, but like the others I use street view to help find house numbers some times

You had a caravan? You kept that quiet!

I wonder why Streetview never comes to our street. Apple Maps came.

The street has been there for at least 15 years.
They don’t have to record my parents’ house every year though. It doesn’t change that much.
