0
I need to verify a statement as I am told street view only came in in 2007, but I know this happened. I needed to find the name of the format I did this through as could otherwise undermine my testimony.  I put in the street name and was able to access pictures of the street and move around it on the screen. Please, please help me to find the name of this format. Thank you deeply. I don't want my word to be questioned as I know it was a thing, but I'm not techie enough to know the name of it back then. Many many thanks x

Hi D 9197,

Welcome to the Google Earth community.
 
If you were able to move around within the pictures then that was unrelated to Google Earth or Maps.  Earth's first version came out in 2001 and Maps came out in 2005. I'm afraid it's unlikely that anyone here would know what product you were using.

Hi, You have really helped me a lot. Yes, you could move, but not in the way you could now. You could just pan in a basic way. I think it was from static pictures maybe. But you could see the fronts of shops and houses. It was limited in its roll out. I think London was one of the few cities included. I think this may be the thing I'm refering to.  It wasn't complicated to do so it must have been open access etc

Sorry to ask more Flash but did that launch in 2001 allow basic street pictures of some very built up areas such as London? It was as if you were looking but with your feet stuck to the ground. Unlike now where you can travel down streets.

If anyone has a link to anything reference to it from 2001 that would be enormously helpful. Thank you greatly x
