Google maps have been very helpful to most people when looking for a certain place. Even just seeing what is happening around the globe.

As for Amarillo the Google Street View Car hit the streets taking photos around town for Google Maps. Spotted cruising down 10th and Taylor yesterday afternoon, the vehicle is one of the latest fleet of cars that have 15 lenses to take 360 degree photos. Which also has motion sensors to track its position, a hard drive to store data, and lasers to capture 3D data to determine distances, all run by a computer system right there.

Now when you go in check out the latest Google Maps, everything is shot in the fall and winter months. When all the plants and trees are dead, so why can't they shoot photos during the spring or summer months when it's more livid.
