You’ll read it here first! After months of waiting and wondering when Google would finally flick the switch to include Winnipeg on its Street View application, the moment is here.
Google made Winnipeg available late Tuesday, featuring 3D images of almost every corner of the city. Also added today were Victoria, Nanaimo, Edmonton, Saskatoon, Sudbury, London, Sherbrooke and St. John’s.
You can view the Street View images on Google Maps by entering an address and dragging the little orange icon/figure over your chosen destination.
Other parts of the province have yet to go live, but we would guess they should be appearing shortly.
Many hours will now be spent scouting out various locations. This is going to be fun!

UPDATE: Thanks to Corey Q. for pointing out the little glitch near the Niakwa Country Club (620 Niakwa Road) — the street in front of the club was shot in the summer, but a few hundred yards down near the foot bridge, it’s a winter wonderland.
