Google Street View in Shetland

March 17, 2010

Google has increased its Street View service to include 96% of UK roads, including most of the roads in Shetland.

Google Street View provides 360° horizontal panoramic views from of a row of positions along roads, allowing users to take a virtual tour of an area using their computer or mobile internet device. Find out more and try Street View for yourself at http://www.google.co.uk/help/maps/streetview/index.html

We've embedded below a Google Street View of the Esplanade in Lerwick, just outside our office in the Stewart Building. Explore Lerwick by clicking on the arrows on the road within the picture and click & drag to look around. We think embedded Google Street views are a great feature that could enhance many websites, as it makes it easier for customers to find you.
