Race for street views

We have our maps now online, we have satellite views, we have helicopter views and other aerial views, but street views are what takes it to a whole new level.

Google started it, they have now street views photographed 360° from thousands of different locations, including New York, San Fransisco, Barcelona, Madrid, Milan, Roma and so on.

But Fonecta made it in Finland first. http://virtuaalikierros.02.fi/ has street views from Helsinki and Tampere, and also views inside the shops that are on those streets! What a great idea for Fonecta, they'll get some money from the companies, and users are happy to window shop!

Kudos to Fonecta!
