Google Streetview to provide interior shots

November 11, 2010 01:30PM

Google Streetview — an option on Google Maps that allows user to see any street and the surrounding area — is introducing a new feature this spring that is sure to help the real estate industry: interior views of retail and other establishments. Google Streetview is already offered on many real estate search sites and this new addition looks promising, as the Google team was already spotted taking photos this week in Austin, Tex., Agent Genius reported. Google has no plans to enter people’s homes, but the interior views of the stores will help people who are looking to move get an idea of the retail options nearby. [Agent Genius]
