Google Street View Car in Villa-Lobos Park in São Paulo

Google' Street View Camera Car in Villa-Lobos Park in São Paulo on January 7, 2010.

In Latin America, Google Street View is currently available in parts of Mexico and Brazil. It has also been planned for parts of Argentina,[1] Chile (in process),[2][3] Colombia,[4] and Peru.[4]

Background

Mexico

In Mexico, first reports of sightings came in from Mexico City as early as April 2009 and now Google Street View cars are being spotted in many Mexican states. On November 9, 2009, Street View was made available in cities of Mexico, including Mexico City, Guadalajara, Monterrey, Puebla, Cancún and Puerto Vallarta.[5]

On February 10, 2010, more places were added.

On April 15, 2010, more areas of Mexico were uploaded. Although complete coverage has not yet occurred (in some cities only main streets are imaged), numerous locations including communities in Baja California and Ciudad Juárez now had extensive street-level coverage with this update.

Brazil

In September 2010, the first cities from Brazil were added.[6] The service started with 51 cities, most from São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Belo Horizonte and greater metropolitan areas. Historic cities such as Ouro Preto, Diamantina and Tiradentes were also included. Google is expecting to cover 90% of Brazilian streets in two years.[7]

Google is also working on "Street View" for Brazil's rainforests. Pedal-powered trikes are being used to film the forests, and boats with 3-D cameras are being used to navigate the Amazon River.[8]

In the initial release of Brazil's Street View, two dead bodies were found in the images. These were later removed.[9]

  • Chile: Chilean company Publiguías released a service similar to Google's Street View in December 2010 called "Street Diving". It currently offers views of Providencia and Santiago communes, with plans to expand it to other communes in the future.[13] XYGO launched a street view service in April 2011 partially covering seven cities.[14]
