Google's latest expansion of its Street View mapping service has seen it enter Hungary and Lesotho to [url="http://google-latlong.blogspot.co.uk/2013/04/celebrating-50th-country-on-street-view.html"]mark 50 countries[/url] in which the feature is now available. The company has also pushed its "largest single update" of new and updated mapping images for over 350,000 miles of roads across 14 of its supported countries, which include France, Italy, Poland, Romania, Russia, Singapore, and Thailand.

In October, Google pushed updated imagery [url="http://www.theverge.com/2012/10/11/3487566/google-expands-street-view"]for over 250,000 miles of road[/url], expanding coverage in the US, Great Britain, Italy, and Sweden, among other areas. Today's update sees the company add more special collections to its service, which now includes popular spots like the Pena National Palace in Portugal, the Sha Tin Che Kung Temple in Hong Kong, and the Kilkenny Castle in Ireland

I've never seen any figures released, but I've often wondered what it's costing them to do this.

In 10 years they'll have a drone army able to travel to the spot you click in 10 seconds or less and snap it real time.

I look forward to street viewing Mars in the future... when we live there.

Wish they'd update a few of their older images.

For instance it seems daft that the London Olympic park (where i'm originally from) still shows it under construction. Also, up where i live now, the highlands, local restaurants, guest houses and areas change so much that the current crop of street view images are irrelevant.

That aside, i do love browsing around viewing the sites, even if they are slightly outdated.
