Sweden Off Road. See it “Street View”.

Monday, March 9th, 2015

Google has taken StreetView off road…and hit the trails. New name: TrailView, TrekView?

In September 2014 Google strapped their globular camera, aptly named Google Trekker, to the guy below. His job was to lug it along Kungsleden, or The King’s Trail in northern Sweden to let us see what he saw via Google Street View.

There are over 20 sites in Sweden that Street View has captured.

Save the rather irritating entrance fee to get into Stockholm’s Storkyrkan or see what it would feel like to be center of attention at the Ericson Globe.

Or one of my most favorite places to visit in Sweden, Ales Stenar, the megalithic monument in southern Sweden in an oval outline, a sort of Swedish Stonehenge.

Not a bad way to get around Sweden if you can’t be here for real.

Swedish statue: Identity protected on Google

Friday, January 25th, 2013

Seems as if Google’s Street View doesn’t want any liability actions. Not from a wooden statue at least.

Old Man Rosenbom hails from the Swedish town of Karlskrona. His image was captured when Street View filmed the streets and squares of Sweden. His image has been blurred in order to “preserve his integrity” a regular service Google provides for the human faces caught on film.

Smart technologies are still not smart enough yet. Not to discern between reality and art.

I wonder which other street images are blurred.
