It's finally here, Google Maps street view for South Africa! And just in time for us to view our lovely stadiums durimg the world cup too.
Today we became the first country in Africa to receive a street view, possibly because of the Soccer world cup.
To find a place on Street View, all you have to do is type the address into Google the same way you would if you were writing a letter. Google Maps will come up and you will see a little orange man by the zoom button, which you can drag onto any street on the map to see what it would look like if you were standing there. You can rotate the view by dragging it, zoom in by double clicking and click on arrows to explore.
Additonally, Google has added models of the stadiums for those who can't go to the games themselves, in all 10 locations: Rustenburg, Nelspruit, Polokwane, Cape Town, Durban, Pretoria, Port Elizabeth, Bloemfontein, and Johannesburg, as well as a variety of photographs from Panaramio.
