Google has just rolled out an upgrade to their controversial mapping service. In the Summer of 2009, a special Google car, equipped with state of the art cameras, roamed around Southend taking pictures of our town.

If you’ve not used the service before – the trick is to type in a street address or postcode into, then drag the little icon of a person from the controller on the left, and drop the person onto the appropriate street. You’re then in a scrollable view of that street and can move around, pan up, turn around and zoom.
