"Unconfirmed sources are reporting that Internet giant Google will unveil a new mapping service called River View. The service will allow users to view the shores of every navigable river in the United States. The interface will be accessible through Google Maps much like the existing service Street View."

We can also look forward to Railroad View, Cave View, Backyard View Office View and Bedroom View.

This would actually be cool for people who kayak etc. I would find this extremely useful.

I wonder if anyone at Google has thought about it?

Google Coast View would be really cool in Irelands Atlantic-Beaten western coastline. Truly unique. Google it.

And don't forget that Google Maps BargeView is not a hoax:

So instead of mapping cars, they'll have mapping boats?
