Google Street View

Why is it that in Germany and Austria only very few places are covered by Street View compared to all other European countries?

Re: Google Street View

Switzerland had the same concerns and Google was taken to court. Google retried and the result is missing in this Wikipedia report.

Re: Google Street View

In germany anyone can ask to remove their house. So many buildings have been hidden that it's not usable, so they stopped doing it completely. Abundant 360° pictures is the way forward for those countries.

As far as I am aware, it applies everywhere. It definitely applies in the UK though very few people have actually done it

The UK people are okay with video surveillance in every street etc. They feel safer apparently. So why should google street view bother them?

Re: Google Street View

These days Google street view is monitoring outside your house. Where as the cameras on new smart tvs monitor inside the house. It's all this Big Brother stuff. How much can you really stop?

Re: Google Street View

In Germany, like elsewhere, they run around with a transponder in their pockets but complain about Google street?
