EveryScape - 542 locations

how about a legend explaining what the other symbols/logos represent? i know the car is from windows live local, but i'm not familiar with the other two.

as an aside, what do you think the likelihood is of your prediction for today's street view update coming true?

Been watching for a Birmingham update all day. Is it going to happen today?

Augusta, Georgia and Columbus, Georgia have Google Street View now.

Well, it's great that EveryScape and MapJack exist, though. Because they're so small, they've escaped media attention.

MapJack has really sharp imagery and no blurring. Same story, I think with EveryScape. I think it's funny that in EveryScape you can see those parts of Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills which were removed at the request of residents and business owners in Street View. Because EveryScape is under the radar, residents and business owners are unaware they're homes are still pictured in another service. Shhh. Don't tell.

September 28th is two days past, and still NO Seattle. None of the other eight places to be added, i.e. Honolulu, Talahasee, Washington D.C., ...etc are on either yet.

yeah, i've been wondering the same myself. any chance of updating your predictions?

This update might be like the tediously long wait for July 2. Hopefully not, so I just combined North America's and Oceania's predictions. I might also add some European cities later today.

But right now, Google's going to have to surprise us again; I'm stumped. :-)
