Thanks for sharing. Great read ...


P.S. From this WIRED article ....

"Google wants you to help feed its image-hungry algorithms. The tech industry’s recent interest in virtual reality has made 360 degree cameras relatively cheap. This summer, Google began certifying some cameras as “Street View ready,” meaning you can upload your own panoramas through the Street View mobile app to live on the company’s service. That footage will be processed by Google’s image recognition algorithms for fresh map data just like its own imagery."

"Google is counting on crowdsourcing to make Street View data fresher than it is now. “The expectation is that Google has the world indexed,” says Charles Armstrong, a product manager for Street View. “But it never lives up to expectations.” Google’s Street View mobile app rewards individuals who contribute photos with virtual trophies, and it will even suggest local spots to take your camera. More significantly, Armstrong predicts companies, tourist boards, and even governments will soon be driving their own camera-toting cars to make sure the world gets an up-to-date view of their streets and cities."
