This is a little bit late, but I noticed that Google has added some traffic tools for major cities. For those of us in the Tampa area, we can use Google traffic to see what driving into town looks like.

As far as I can tell, Google does not have a specific list of the areas that they cover and don’t cover. You just have to go to the area and see if it shows a traffic button.

Just Fun:

Google StreetView allows you to view images of an area. It’s like jumping down from the satellite into the map. But, it is not available in Tampa; the closest area is Miami.

 This is my attempt to capture the Vizcaya in Miami with the Street View.  Click here to see it yourself.

Yeah, some lady was freaked out when she saw the picture of her house on googlemaps–it was detailed enough to see her cat sitting in the front window.

I just read an article about getting Google to remove your picture. It sounds like you have to be very determined!
