Google Maps Camera Car Spotted In Grand Blanc [VIDEO]

YouTube

Have you ever wondered how Google Maps gets all the actual pictures of roads, intersections and landmarks throughout the country?  I thought it was done with satellites but, as usual, it turns out I was wrong.

As I was leaving home to run a few errands last week, I saw the strangest looking vehicle I’ve ever seen.  It was a Google Maps camera car.

In addition to the interstates and highways, these things cruise the country going down every public road, avenue, boulevard, and street taking picture after picture which create the composites seen on Google Maps.

It can take anywhere from six months to a year to process and finally make it on to the website, but how cool will it be to take a virtual drive down Saginaw Street with the classic cars from Back to the Bricks!

See one of these cars in the video below as a man plays hide and seek with the Google Maps Camera Car.
