Photos of Milwaukee Businesses, Homes Now on Google

Google Street Views has made its way to Milwaukee. Simply do a Google search for an address in Milwaukee and click on the "Street Views" link in the resulting map. You'll see a panoramic view from the street like the one below. Notice that you can pan, rotate and zoom, as well as, move forward or backward down the street.

Despite its usefulness for travelers, home buyers, etc., it's no surprise that Google Street Views has raised privacy concerns. See the related NYT article. Google does allow users to report inappropriate photographs.

Google Street Views is currently only available for major metropolitan areas.
