    I saw the Earth cam on a web surf,thought I'd check it out,guess it started in 1996.
    Do any of you know anything about it?
    Can you actually see your own neighborhoods in action?

    I don't allow any of those cameras in LAST.
    So you'll never see me.

    This is one of the cars creating google maps. Earthcam is a network of webcams linked to one website. They are mostly real time, except for a few seconds of lag time.

    oh..well here as in many other big cities, we do have street cams, and weather cams, but i nary bother looking at any of them.

    i'd rather see something on the internet that has made news, for one reason or another.

    There have been Cameras all over the U.K., so where's any surprise there are "cameras everywhere" in the USA?
    Cameras have yet to be in the weeds yet there are Trap Cams in places, so watch yer Back!!

    Excessive recording grew after 9-1-1 or am I just being a conspiracy theorist?
    Big Bother (intentional spelling) is WATCHING YOU!!

    CHEERS!!

    Why would they need cars any more when they could be able to see a lot more with drones.

    Cars will get a more uniform view as they go street to street, plus by using a car, it makes seaming all the pictures together much easier for now.
