Despite all the privacy headaches Street View has caused Google over the years, it still stands as one of the firm's greatest projects and on Thursday the firm announced it had got better again.
While its bitter rival Apple struggles to appease frustrated users of its new iOS 6 mapping software - with chief executive Tim Cook even telling customers to use Google's own services - the search giant has announced an update to 250,000 miles of road have been made on Street View.
"We're making our Street View coverage more comprehensive than ever before by launching our biggest ever update - doubling our number of special collections and updating over 250,000 miles of roads around the world," said Ulf Spitzer, Street View Program Manager in a blog post.
Spitzer said that numerous locations would be updated including in the UK, but did not specify where these were.
V3 contacted Google to ask where the locations where but had received no reply at time of publication.
Google has added a number of new historical locations, including the castle of Elsinore Castle in Denmark, the opening of Hamlet, as Spitzer noted.
"The castle known locally as Kronborg and immortalised by Hamlet, provided the setting for the Prince of Denmark to play out his personal battle with madness, grief and searing rage," he said.
A tale "battle with madness, grief and searing rage" - why that could be Apple and Google fighting it out for mapping supremacy.
The updates from Google marks yet more improvements to its mapping software, with canal paths, bike routes and even outdoor locations based on human-mounted cameras all being added to its tool over time. Apple definitely has some work to do.
