Google Street View

View an area before you go there with Google Street View, which is part of Google Maps. You can set a pushpin on Google Maps and then enter street view and "drive" along the road by clicking on it. You can preview many locations this way. If you want to drive farther and faster without having to keep clicking along the road, try Street View Movie. This is a site that automates the process of using Google Street View. Just enter your starting and ending points (login or create a free account first) and click 'start'. If you want to start or end at a random place outside of a city location, you can set a pushpin on a Google map and then copy a GPS coordinate location from that pushpin to the Street View Movie page starting or ending location. Very cool.

More locations will be added later ....
