*Google Store View: Providing Pictures From The Inside Of Stores

Google is experimenting with a new service called “Google Store View”, which would complement its existing service “Google Street View” by providing pictures from also the insides of buildings.

Barry Schwartz from Search Engine Land News today reported about an incident in New York where an alleged Google employee came to a small retails store to take pictures for a new Google Maps product named “Google Store Views”. The Google employee took pictures of the inside of the store, every 2 meters, in all directions. Furthermore also took pictures of products were taken.The idea itself is not new as other websites such as hotel-comparison sites offer similar services and users already now can upload pictures from inside their stores to Google Maps.

When the editor contacted Google on the subject Google replied: “We are always experimenting with new features for Google Maps. We have nothing further to announce at this time.


I unfortunately failed to embed the Google Streetview window into my blog, so please click on the picture above and a new tab with the Google Street view application will open

Google Store View would however take the existing Google Street View service to a new (inside) level while at the same time complementing it.

I wonder what will be next? Photographs from the inside of public places such as libraries and railway stations?
