Google Maps Car 002

The Google Maps Street View car was seen around 2:23 p.m. ET today at the corner of Linebaugh Ave. and N. Dale Mabry in the Carrollwood area of Tampa.  The Google Maps cars are capturing images in Hillsborough, Orange, Osceola and Polk counties. Google Maps Street View was launched as an experiment in 2007. Back then, Google Maps packed its vehicle with several computers in the back of an SUV with cameras, lasers and GPS on the top to collect its first images.  Now the 360 degree panoramic views can be seen in locations on all 7 continents, according to Google Maps.
