It Looks Like Apple Street View is On the Way

It looks like Apple is getting ready to significantly boost the quality of its Maps product, possibly with its own Street-View like feature.

 

Greg Sterling at Search Engine Land points to a page on the Apple Maps site describing its vehicles and discussing locations they will be covering. Here’s what it says:

 

Apple is driving vehicles around the world to collect data which will be used to improve Apple Maps. Some of this data will be published in future Apple Maps updates.

 

We are committed to protecting your privacy while collecting this data. For example, we will blur faces and license plates on collected images prior to publication.

 

Locations it’s covering include London, Paris, and places in Arizona, California, Florida, Illinois, Kansas, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Michigan, Missouri, Nevada, New Jersey, New York, and Washington.

 

As Sterling notes, Apple vehicles with Cameras were spotted on both the east and west coasts last year.
