Google Adds 6 New 'Streetview' Cities

From Inman News: Google Maps' controversial Street View feature (for more, see Google Maps Hits the Streets) expands to six more cities today with the addition of Chicago, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, Phoenix, Portland and Tucson to its database. As a bonus, the images in Phoenix, Tucson and parts of Chicago are all in high resolution and the service has added the ability to pan up in any of the views, which is especially useful when looking at tall buildings.
Here's a quick marketing tip. Google Maps allows you to email a link to any location, so if you have clients currently looking at properties (especially if they are relocating from another city) email them the link to the Street View so they can take a virtual walk through the neighborhood.
