Google Adds Street Views of Chile

Launched on May 25, 2007 with images of select cities in the United States, Google began adding interactive 360° street views to its online map service.

On September 25, 2012, Google finally added high quality street level images of Chile to their map service.

So far, street view images can be seen of Valparaíso, Viña del Mar, Concepción, Santiago, and a corridor following Chile’s Route 5 south from Santiago to Concepción.

Now anyone can be a virtual tourist of Chile, and catch sights such as…

Palacio de La Moneda which houses the president’s office, and the offices of three cabinet ministers.

The unique streets of Valparaíso which has been designated a World Heritage Site.

A view from Santa Lucía Hill in the middle of Santiago.

Santiago’s high-end financial district known as “Sanhattan.”

Picturesque views of the Pacific Ocean in Viña del Mar (next to Valparaíso).

And Chile’s world famous vineyards.

So far, Google’s “Street View” images can be seen in Brazil, Chile, and Mexico, with plans to add parts of Argentina, Colombia, and Peru as well.
