Just in case you’re not sick of hearing news from Google, there’s more and this time it has a clear cut implication in the real estate industry. Today, Google announced Google Perspective which is “a new type of mapping imagery” giving developers access (through the Google maps API) to high-res imagery taken from an aerial perspective that lets users tilt their view to see multiple angles of buildings and landscapes.
Google Perspective is currently only available in San Jose and San Diego, Google isn’t a slow moving machine so we anticipate that it will be in most major metropolitains soon. Google Perspective’s real estate “partners” include real estate brokerage Redfin and Trulia where you can now look at properties (in San Jose and San Diego) in a whole new way.
