Google Street View active in Cincinnati

I just noticed this today that Google Street View is now active in Cincinnati.  It’s a new function in Google Maps where you can now see a 360 degree photo image of many locations in Cincinnati.  Here’s a shot of Music Hall.MusicHallstreetview.jpg
This is a tremendously powerful tool.  I can see all sorts of uses for it, especially looking up property in real estate. But, is it an invasion of privacy?  It does make it easier for someone to look up and find your house, making it a stalker’s new best friend.  I’m not so worried about that, but it is a little disconcerting to see details of your life on display.  In this picture of the back of my house, you can see my kick bag that I use when I work out.  There’s a picture of my backyard because my house is in between two streets.

    Good point- however if somebody really wanted to stalk you…they really don’t need street view. Looking at my house makes me think that home staging may now extend to front and back yards.

    You’re right, it’s only marginally helpful for stalkers- for when they want to find your house for the first time. I know that it’s just a tool that can be used or misused by the user.

    I discovered three days ago about street view… and I’m actually in one of the views, on my front porch.

    That’s cool. You’ll be immortalized on Google Street View until they come around again and update the picture. I assume they’ll be updating the pictures.
