Google Rolls Out Massive Street View Update

 By Carly Page at Search Engine Watch:
Google has started rolling out its biggest update to Street View ever, updating 250,000 miles of roads.

As well as updating hundreds of thousands of miles of roads, Google has doubled its special collections, adding indoor views of places such as Elsinore Castle in Denmark, and has announced that it's increasing Street View coverage in a number of areas.

"We're increasing Street View coverage in Macau, Singapore, Sweden, the U.S., Thailand, Taiwan, Italy, Great Britain, Denmark, Norway and Canada. And we're launching special collections in South Africa, Japan, Spain, France, Brazil and Mexico, among others," Google announced in a blog post.

Although this massive Street View update comes amidst Apple's iOS 6 mapping dramas, even those who upgraded to Apple's latest mobile operating system can take advantage of Google's new Street View features.
