From Google Street Views to Google Store Views

Posted on February 4, 2010 by Vanessa

Search Engine Land’s Barry Schwartz received a tip from New York retailer Oh Nuts that Google had visited their store location to take pictures.  The purpose of these pictures was for their upcoming Google Maps feature “Google Store Views”.  The retailer explained that pictures were taken in six foot increments in all directions from inside the store.  The idea is to provide Google Maps users with the ability to use Google Street views to get to the store and then navigate through the store with Google Store Views.  In addition to the images that were taken of the store in general, product specific images were taken as well.

Pictures were taken of Google taking pictures from within the store and posted by Barry:
