AS Regio, an Estonian provider of location-based solutions, has finished taking images of Estonian tourist attractions and streets for Google's Street View application and forwarded the data to Google, the daily Õhtuleht says. The company hopes the service will be implemented in the second quarter of the year.
Regio collected GPS positioning data, photos, and images of objects and traffic signs by laser scanning for Street View during the summer months last year.
Project manager Sven Veskioja said the whole process has basically ended for Regio and it now only has to wait for when the Map application will be made available by Google. "We do not have a firm agreement but according to preliminary information the service should become available in the summer," he said.
