Google's Street View has just been expanded to cover more than 95 percent of UK roads.
The move has been welcomed by zoopla.co.uk and s1homes.com, both of which are emphasising the benefits for their users.
"Being able to offer street-level imagery for the whole of the UK is an invaluable feature for our users as they search for homes to buy or rent and do their research on current home values and recent sold prices," says zoopla.co.uk CEO Alex Chesterman. "zoopla.co.uk is all about providing useful tools to our users help them make better informed property decisons and Google Street View is an important part of that mission."
"Since we introduced Google Street View on s1homes.com, it’s become one of the most popular features," adds s1homes.com managing director Mark Smith. "Our users are spread across a wide geographic area, not just the main cities, so we are delighted that more will now benefit from it."
According to The Press Association, the increased Street View coverage provides mapping of an additional 210,000 miles of British roads to the public.
