A map shows all the places Google maps currently is in “About Street Views” (in blue) and the places it’s coming. These include some exotic locations which are being mapped by a combination of vehicles. It includes locations like Svalbard islands that are being mapped by automobile and the Amazon river that is being mapped by motorboat. Other vehicles used include cars, backpacks, trolleys, snowmobiles and trikes.

With Google Maps Street View, you can explore the world at street level. See popular landmarks, check out places you want to visit in your hometown or far away, and take a virtual trip around the world.

To use Street View, open Google Maps, search for a place or long-press the map, and tap the Street View option.

The map is interactive and it is interesting some of the countries it shows including US, Canada, Europe, Australia, Korea, Japan and even obscure island chains in the ocean. Some of the large areas without street data include China, Russia, India, Africa and South America though Google says it is working on expanding its mapping of those areas.

It is still unknown how long before the entire map is filled in.
