Interesting. I took the description to mean that Canada, Switzerland, and Germany were the three countries not shown on the map above (the one that indicates which countries have Street View available). Therefore, neither the map nor the list below dynamically shows where the cars literally are. I'm assuming that the Street View data in these regions are periodically up to date, but those three countries are not actively being driven.

I can confirm a sighting of the Streetviewcar in Austria (near German border, though) on 30.07.'09:

that listing of switzerland, germany, canada is a bit odd. in addition to norway and austria above, the cars were in ireland too.

I'm in London, Ontario, Canada, and I saw one of the cars on my way home a few weeks ago. I'll be looking for my car when the imagery finally becomes available. ;)

I was in Cork last week and the google car drove by me and like 8 other guys I was there with.

There was some shouting and "OMG WE'RE ON GOOGLE STREET VIEW", since everyone I was with was a massive nerd.

interesting snippet from ireland:

"a google car was parked up in my car park the other day. Spoke to the driver took photos of it myself. He said there is 12 cars doing the whole country but it will take them about 5 months more to complete."

I knew they were doing Dublin here (I recall reading something about it here), but the whole country! I suppose it -is- small, but wow, maybe Tom's vote for Tullamore will come true after all :D

Doing Ireland makes sense because Google has their "Second Base" here, but I still had thought it would take longer to get to our puny country.

Interesting how Ireland isn't on the site though...

They have been to several cities in Portugal, but we still dont show on that list

Funny fact, one of their cars is said to have been tolled by the cops lol

from above – reported so far:

switzerland, austria, portugal, ireland, germany, canada, poland

based on how long its taken them to push a new update to streetview my guess is that this is a marketing strategy – they are holding back in order to make an enormous splash and generate lots of buzz

rather than incremental small updates, we're going to get the mother of all streetview updates – as in – "here's ALL of europe" (or at least a big chunk of it...)

Google Street View Trike is in Paris today and all this month.

BTW, here is the map of countries covered by Street View.
