<<IF YOU SEE a black car with elaborate, roof-top camera equipment cruising past your house next week, do not fear.

It is nothing more sinister than Google’s attempt to collect detailed photographs from five cities around Ireland for a new feature on its ever-expanding website.

...

The image-gathering exercise will begin next week when several black cars will start driving around the streets of Dublin taking detailed digital pictures as they go. The cars are hard to miss: mounted on the roof of each one is a five-foot high apparatus equipped with eight digital cameras, low-level radar and a GPS antenna which corresponds every photograph with its exact geographical location.

...

Google could not confirm when the service will be formally launched in Ireland.>>
