In Indonesia the ability to zoom in on a Google map
for a 360-degree street view iscurrently limited to Jakarta, Bogor, Surabaya and Denpasar (Bali).
Andrew McGlinchey, product manager for Southeast Asia for Google APAC
that the street view is now available for 90% of the streets in the listed cities.
In addition to tours of the residential and business areas of the cities surveyed, Google Street View
also records some of Indonesia’s more iconic destinations, including Ubud, Bali and the coral reefs of Komodo.
Rudy Rumawy, country director for Google Indonesia
promised the Google Street View
service would soon be extended to more cities in Indonesia as their sophisticated survey vehicles crawls more streets recording 360-degree views using advanced GPS technology.
manager said one of the obstacles in recording Street Views is the need for the survey vehicle to operate at a more-or-less constant rate of speed, a requirement often made problematic by congested traffic conditions in Indonesia.
