Apple confirmed last month that it is driving vehicles around the world to collect data to improve Apple Maps, and the mapping imagery is almost certainly being used to create a Google Maps "Street View" competitor. Apple Maps vehicles are also taking photos of businesses and storefronts in major metropolitan areas to replace current imagery provided by third-party sources such as Yelp.

The cities and counties in the 13 U.S. states where Apple Maps vehicles will survey…

Colorado
Denver

Idaho
Ada County (Boise)

Indiana
Marion County (Indianapolis)

Is anybody really using Streetview regularly?
Yep - I use it a few times a week, actually. Lately it's been a few times a day, as I'm looking for a new apartment and I want to check out what the neighborhoods of listings are like. It's saved me from a bunch of unnecessary trips

Is anybody really using Streetview regularly?
Heck yeah. I use it to:


* Check out parking spots before I go into New York City.
* Preview intersections and exits (important up here).
* See what storefronts look like (it's often surprising how hidden they are).
* Check out neighborhoods when surfing for real estate.
* Show my wife what her new doctor's office looks like.
* Even read the parking signs ahead of time.
