Ordinary People in Germany and Brazil Take on Google Street View
User-generated Google Street View lets people navigate cities and paths from a local's perspective
Mapillary is a mapping service that's offering up a more diverse and local take on POV street views. The site crowdsources street level photos from contributors around the world, giving Internet users the ability to explore previously un-photographed spaces or regions.
In just seconds, anyone with internet access can open up Google Street View and explore city streets, neighborhoods, and popular public areas. But Mapillary aims to go where Google's cars have not, and it lets ordinary people contribute with little effort.
