This has been done for years already.   That's why many ask for a picture.

 

 

I do like the feature on the cache page.  Nice addition.

 I was checking this morning to see if there were any unfound caches that I might want to hunt today, and when viewing one of them, I came across a most unusual "street view."  The Google image car now takes x-ray images?

Yep. I got that same view too. A couple weeks ago we saw that on another website when we were looking to take my son go keying for his birthday. Check out k1speed.com to see another instance.

It got me interested.  Checking other places, I found a good example of whats happening.  Go to the 9700 block of Westheimer and find CLASSY DESIGN FLORIST, 9717 Westheimer.  Within the store, using the carrot things at the bottom of the view, you can move the camera around to get different view (just like you do on street views).  One spot you can see a reflection of the camera setup in the front door on a tripod.  Start in the middle of the store and back yourself out to the door (use the left and right rotations as you move backwards.

 

I guess Google has permission from the owner of the store to take the videos (and maybe at a charge).  One view has a gentleman entering/standing at the door

I guess this is something relatively new that Google's come up with.  Interesting way to virtually tour an area.

Just found a little bit more about this X-ray stuff GOOGLE has of going into buildings and shops.  There are quite a few places that has allowed/bought the service to have them take pictures inside their business.  Must be about 100 of them in and around Houston.

 

To check/see where they are located, get on a GOOGLE street map of your area and zoom in rather close. Hold down on the google man and move him around looking for small green dots.  Place the cursor on it.  For example, look up 9717 Westheimer, Houston TX, zoom in and your will see the green dot.  There are other green dots nearby.  Downtown Houston has five or six.

 

In some of the businesses, I saw reflections and one was of a man taking pictures with the camera on a tripod.  Look like a smaller version of the ones on automobiles.

 

I notice some blue dots/squares also.  Seems they are parking lots and taking pictures of tall buildings.  More of a scenic type.

 

Most of the businesses are in the higher end businesses, dress shops, florists, some coffee break shops, high end furniture, beauty shops and so forth.  Another one was a smoke shop, another was a upper class western wear/cowboy boots place.

 

I may be up all night checking out some of these places.
