Google confirms Street View is coming to India!

Google has finally confirmed that they are bringing Google Street View to India! They are going to start with the city of Bangalore. Google announced that they will begin imagery collection in Bangalore for the Street View feature in Google Maps.

Google cars and trikes will begin driving and taking street level photographs of public locations around the city. The images will be made available at a later date in Street View on Google Maps.

So now, you can visit the streets of bangalore in Google Maps even before you can physically be there.

Starting today, Google has rolled out the image collection process where cars with cameras built on top and the specially designed Google Trike three-wheel pedi-cab with a camera system mounted on top — will start gathering images from select locations in and around Bangalore, such as the Nrityagram Dance Village over the next few weeks.

Street View is a popular feature of Google Maps, already available in more than 27 countries. It allows users to virtually explore and navigate a neighborhood through panoramic street-level images. It is also available on Google Maps for mobile.
