Slide along Google Street View
03 August, 2010 | Web design
Some Estate Agents believe that Google Street View is an excellent addition to the functionality of their website helps property searchers get an idea of the exact location of the property.
On the other hand, some members of the public think that Google Street View is an infringement of fundamental human privacy whilst making their property a potential target for thieves.
Whatever your view, Google Street View is an evolution of translating the real world into an offline image.
Google isn’t the only one who can provide innovative products though. Microsoft’s search engine Bing (which has a 3.3% market share according to StatCounter) will soon reveal a project that could take over as the nation’s favourite way to view the street level.
Street Slide behaves in a very similar fashion to Street View but with one difference.
Estate Agents can place buildings so that they are lined up side by side and then ‘slide’ along with only a drag of the mouse.
This gives the users a much better perception of the street and with panoramic view, there is space for useful information such as logos, street numbers, images and comments.
