I Refuse to Entitle this Post "Catch your Wife Cheating with Google Street View on Zoocasa.com"
Monday was a big day at the Zoo. We were celebrating the coming together of two very powerful tools. Our ever-talented developers have worked their magic and found a way to marry Zoocasa’s real estate goodness with Google’s Street View. After much planning and excitement this union has launched! As of Monday, beyond viewing homes on Zoocasa’s interactive map, you can find yourself virtually standing on the street in front of a listing. If you like, you can even have a little stroll down the street and take peek into a potential-neighbour’s backyard.
On the other side of this union, Zoocasa brings Canadian real estate listings, neighbourhood factors and school information together. We take all of that useful-home-buying stuff then make it easy to sort and fun to filter. With the Street View tab, located on Zoocasa listing detail pages (along the top of the map), home buyers are able to really view a listing and its surrounding’s from a 360 perspective.
P.S. If you still want more info about Google Street View you might want to watch this cute stop-animation film. It explains the Street View production process with the use of a simple narrative about a single little robot who works tirelessly to collect, assembles and manipulate images: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e5bALLcEygc
