Stockholm one-ups Google
I love Google Street View. It's probably one of my favorite things to do when I run out of Internet to wander -- type in a random town and see the sights. But Street View hasn't made it to very many European cities yet, and they also haven't perfected their image processing. Sometimes whole cities are foggy because of condensation on their on-car cameras.
Stockholm has really upped the ante at hitta.se. The images are huge, crisp, and beautiful (check out the screenshot above). I suppose it helps to be a pristine Swedish harbor town.
Another cool feature is that you can jump ahead more than one step using the blue markers. (Google Street View only allows the user to skip one section at a time.)
Side note: The Google Street View car finally made it past my childhood home in California. It's ten miles from the nearest supermarket, five miles from any major highways, on a dead end road. Needless to say, it's a little surreal to see it online.
