When the Street View feature was first introduced to Houston Google Maps about a year ago, it allowed viewers to follow street-level photos . . . mostly along major thoroughfares. In March, Google added street-level views of residential neighborhoods within a huge swath of West Houston and Pasadena . . . but the update still left out most areas inside the Loop.
This week, a tipster informs us, Google has expanded Street View again, updating its database with photos taken from almost every street inside the Loop . . . and this time including most areas inside the Beltway and beyond as well. The map above shows the extent of the new coverage.
Smile! Photos of your home are likely now on the internet . . . unless you live in a few special areas in town . . .
What streets have been left out of Street View? Well, how about this chunk of Sunset Terrace in West U?
Or the northern reaches of River Oaks?
But why fret about what’s missing, when there’s so much to

sweet! thanks for the tip!

My street is mysteriously unmapped — and that’s the way I like it! :D
Hey, there’s my house! I’m famous!
The Google Van came down my street last winter. I was surprised to see my modest Katy shitbox when I looked. Wish I had known! I would have been standing in the driveway waving.
My neighborhood is comprehensively missed. But there is about 1/4 of a block, at which point I imagine our private security service turned them away. Wonder if the property values will increase as a result?
