Google Street View Comes To Malaysia

23 09 2013

Do you like the idea of exploring the streets in Malaysia from your computers?

Now we can, but it will take a while until we can explore all the streets in Malaysia because Google Malaysia’s crews are still taking photos of the streets in Malaysia.

However, there are 18 locations that could now be explored using the street view made by Google Maps.

– Sri Subramaniam Temple, Batu Caves

– Masjid Sultan Sallahuddin Abdul Aziz Shah, Shah Alam

– Taman Tasik Titiwangsa

– Fort Cornwallis, Penang

Dharmikarama Burmese Temple, Georgetown, Penang

Kapitan Keling Mosque, Penang

– Penang War Museum

– Taman Putra Perdana, Putrajaya

– Taman Rimba Riang Park, Selangor

– Taman Tasik Shah Alam, Selangor

– Sunway Lagoon

– Shah Alam Go Kart

– Taman Desa Water Park

– Taman Rimba Kiara

– Taman Botanical Kepong

– Taman Tasik Kepong Metropolitan

– Desa Park City

– Taman Tasik Ampang Hilir

Those places can be explored using the classic Google Maps, or the new Google Maps.

It will be fun to see the car with the camera that Google use to collect all the photos for Google Street View.

Anyway, if you don’t want your house to be seen on the Street View, you can contact Google.

Have fun using Street View!

Here is the video of the launching of Street View feature in Malaysia.





Google Maps Adds Street Views Inside Japan Nuclear Zone

24 04 2013

Google Street View shows images from Japan’s ghost towns deserted after nuclear disaster.

Google Street View is giving the world a rare glimpse into Japan’s eerie ghost town, following the March 2011 earthquake and tsunami which sparked a nuclear disaster that has left the area uninhabitable. The photo technology pieces together digital images captured by Google's camera-equipped vehicle and allows viewers to take virtual tours of locations around the world, including faraway spots like the South Pole and fantastic landscapes like the Grand Canyon, or in this case contaminated deserted townscapes.

U.F.O Spotted On Google Maps

30 09 2012

Around the time between 2009 and 2010, I used to spend time playing with Google Map Street View.

I love to look at places that I have visited in the United States and sometimes I would be looking at places that I wish to visit.

One day, I was watching the sky in Jacksonville, Texas.

Suddenly, I saw a purple thing shaped like a UFO so I print screen and pasted it in PowerPoint to save the picture.

But when I told my big sister, Kaman that I spotted a UFO in that picture, she said it was not a UFO but only some kind of light or sun ray.

And yesterday, as I was reading the Good Morning America ABC news, I saw something interesting.

When I opened the page to read the news, I saw a picture that looked very familiar to me.

I searched for the UFO picture that I printed and saved to compare it with the ABC news’s picture.

The comparison of the ABC’s UFO photo and mine.

I guess it must be the same UFO!

Now, I am very proud to see the picture of the same UFO that I had spotted about 3 years ago on the Google Maps featured in the Good Morning America ABC news!
