TRURO - Truro is one of 130 Canadian cities and towns officially on Google Maps' Street View.
This week's launch contains remaining Street View imagery captured throughout Canada in 2009. Street View is updated globablly on an ongoing basis.
Specific locations can be found by typing in the requested place, zooming in to the lowest level and dragging the orange "pegman" icon from the left side of the map onto a blue-lined street.
"We are hugely excited to make so much of Canada visible to the world from the coasts of Newfoundland to the slopes of Whistler Mountain," said Jonathan Lister, managing director and head of Google Canada.
"Street View in Google Maps is about showing people places they might never otherwise experience, and helping them plan journeys, so we hope it will continue to help boost tourism, heritage, real estate, education, and everyday discovery."
The initiative was first launched in 2007 and includes imagery from 18 countries in North America, Europe, Asia and Latin America.
Street View contains imagery that is already visible from public roads and blurs identifiable faces and licence plates, ensuring sensitivity to privacy.
Also, users can request the removal of images considered sensitive or inappropriate by clicking on the "report a problem" link.
