Google 3D Warehouse Integrates Street View

The Google Maps Street View feature has now been added as a tab to Google’s 3D Warehouse, in case the model includes geo information. The Warehouse directory offers 3D models for Google SketchUp users and for integration into Google Earth. (These days, any other site can integrate Street View too, via the API.) Frank Taylor of the Google Earth Blog, who sent this in, says “this new tab is an excellent example of Google using their own tools in a smart way”.

In other recent Street View news, AP reported that Google was sued by a couple who claim Google’s panorama pics “violated their privacy, devalued their property and caused them mental suffering” (see the forum discussion).

[Thanks Frank and Brinke!]
