Since Google Street View has so much coverage now, they have removed the camera icons and replaced them with a little picture of Pegman. Although this is good for de-cluttering Google Maps, it's bad for counting how much imagery is currently available. So a new way must now be devised to count the data.
Official Street View Website
For Google's official website on Street View locations (present and future) and much more, go to:

Here is the new way the blog will be arranging it: First the continent, then the country, then the divisions of the country.
Commonwealth of Australia: 8 divisions
French Republic: 21 divisions
Italian Republic: 20 divisions
Japan: 47 divisions
New Zealand: 16 divisions
Kingdom of Spain: 17 divisions
United States of America: 51 divisions
When every major street (on Google Maps, shown in yellow or orange at zoom level 6 [7 in Japan]) in a division is covered, then the division is counted in green as fully covered. If most of them are covered, then the divison is counted in indigo as mostly covered. If less than half of them are covered, then the divison is counted in red as partly covered. If none are covered, then the division is not counted at all.
This new method will be used on this blog's sidebar.
