Service Google Street View was launched in 2007. It allows you to view panoramic views of the streets of many cities around the world and other places of the planet on Google Maps and Google Earth. Most of the photos are taken by car, but some by tricycle, boat, snowmobile or on foot.
Now using Google Street View, you can not only easily find out the address you need, but also get your share of entertainment. So, making virtual walks, you can stumble upon a party of superheroes, two divers sunbathing in a parking lot, and also visit unique places, such as the village of rag dolls.

Cow with smeared face
As you know, Google’s automatic algorithms cover people’s faces and car numbers on their Google Maps and Google Earth map services. This is done for privacy reasons. But sometimes the system fails, and it blurs not only faces and numbers. So, in the English city of Cambridge, a cow with a smeared face is captured, although it is not smeared with a neighboring burenka. More details of this place can be seen here .
Hundreds of rag dolls
It might seem that people waiting for public transport are sitting at these stops. In fact, these are rag dolls created by Ayano Tsukimi, a resident of the Japanese village of Nagoru. As a woman told in a documentary, the idea to create these dolls came to her after she sewed a scarecrow for her garden, making him look like her father. Then Tsukimi decided to recreate all the inhabitants who had ever lived in her native village in the form of stuffed rags.
We add that the woman created more than 350 dolls and placed them throughout the village. You can spend a fascinating tour of the village here .

Bonus number 1: the driver of the car Google Street View spoke about his work
A few years ago, a driver driving a Googel Street View answered questions from Reddit users. Based on his answers, we collected 7 facts about how the process of filming from different corners of our planet goes.
- When people see the Googel Street View camera, some of them tend to look funny, for example, pretend to be fighting with each other, or show various gestures.
- Google cameras take great pictures even at high speeds (100–110 km / h).
- Shooting is not carried out in the rain or strong wind, as the photos are blurry.
- Panoramas of those city streets that are rarely viewed by Internet users on Google Maps are not captured for the Googel Street View service.
- In general, the driver chooses the path himself. He knows only the starting and ending points, as well as the key points that he must pass.
- If the driver stopped for lunch, people often ask him for permission to take a picture next to the car.
- About half a year has passed since filming street panoramas to uploading images to Google Street View.
