Within 18 months, "street view" will be a commodity - tech such as LIDAR/GIS/Aerial imagery will provide the means to map every city street and building. And since LIDAR can be done at night (when streets are deserted), views will be unobstructed from moving vehicles and pedestrians. I'm glad Google did maps, it was useful. But all those street view photos will soon be irrelevant.
