I checked out my parents house in Scarborough, and I can see them outside with my kids. I've also checked out my house in Ajax (it was a Friday, I can tell from the recycle bins) and my brother's house in Whitby. I was only expecting the down core to be done, I didn't realize that the would be going on almost every street in the burbs.

Hey who is that strange guy on my front porch kissing my wife?


just kidding of course but I wonder how many people have been caught by google cameras where they should not be, or up to no good?

Not in London yet. This isn't fair, what's so special about Kitchener....
I even saw the cars driving around town a few months ago...

Cool...I checked last night around midnight and it wasn't active. I was expecting to see my car on one of the views since I passed the Google camera car, but it didn't make it.

and "here" is... where? I've heard people saying they've been to Summerside, Prince Edward Island but I highly doubt that.

Here is where their going to be going , it showed they were in London a few months ago but I noticed London & Windsor have both been taken off so they have must of wrapped up around here. There is alot of smaller cities in SWO (ex. St Marys) being taken, but of course St. Marys is more of a Tourist area so that is to be excepted. I assume it also includes "Surrounding Areas" too.

Edit: i noticed theirs a few spots where just one dead end of a road is covered (no sign of the car entering) so that shows they are defiantly going to be expanding soon, otherwise covering 100m of just a dead end road doesn't make scene. (S-W of K/W if you were wordering)

Mine looks like late March. My grass looks freshly raked and I did that March 24. Our street looks a lot nicer in the summer with all the trees in leaf, but I guess you can't see the houses then...

I checked out my house and saw something cool. The street that tees into ours was imaged in early spring before the leaves came out and you can see our house fine.

Once you actually get onto our street though the view changes to about two months later and everything is fully green. It was pretty freaky.

Android rocks!

I guess Hamilton and Burlington are now part of Toronto or Kitchener?

Not sure why only 11 cities are listed in story.
