Great thread, it's such a shame that google Street view was taken back in 2008, does anyone know how often they will update street view, i wouldn't imagen it be updated often, lets hope it's every 5 years in the main cities..

Most of them were taken in 2009 I believe. Google do not let on when they will update the images. They're not even finished in some other countries yet.

It's amazing how different a city can look in different ways. Seeing these screen caps has been very 'WOW' for me. All the different angle show off Leeds perfectly. Love. It.

Agreed, this is a great thread.

Be nice if they did go down some ofthe alleyways too. Anyone know if theyre planning to have a streetview 'barrow'? Or maybe just a guy with a big hat full of cameras?

They have a Streetview tricycle, which they've used in and around Italy. They're intending to map a lot more pedestrianised areas.

Great pics. Leeds really is a fine city. Some astonishing late C19 architecture. Streets also look very clean.[/QUOTE]

I definitely prefer the virtual Leeds to the real Leeds for the same reason.:)

Maybe that prat from Salford who was slagging off Leeds the other day should take a look at this thread.

Guess I'll bump this thread.

I was just looking at Leeds on google streetview. Leeds has some dated areas but I think it's fair to say the majority of our city centre is pleasant.
