Google Street View is a feature of Google Maps and Google Earth that provides panoramic street level (360 degree horizontal movement and 290 degrees of tilt), allowing users to view parts of selected cities and their surrounding metropolitan areas. It was introduced first in the United States on 25 May 2007.

When the service was launched, only five American cities were included. Since then it has expanded to 31 European countries, 7 Latin American, 11 Asian, 4 African and Antarctica.

For taking the pictures it is taken into account the weather, time and temperature, thereby obtaining similar photographs. All of them are always modified before its final publication, blurring faces and license plates, due to privacy policies of the different countries where the service is present.

In this case, the images are taken in two days. For that, the infrastructure is closed, for they are performing tests, while in later days, as with people, final photographs will be taken.
