I am leaving this as a comment because I don't know how to ask you directly...

My girlfriend and I are debating who would win in a fight between 10 elephants and 1 billion ants. I say the ants, she says the elephants. What do you think?

"...whether it is a Web viewer like Google Earth..."

Google Earth is not a Web viewer or Web application, it is an standalone application that must be download and run from your computer. Perhaps you meant Google Maps?

The spatial tags in Geonomy (a hobby project) hint at a long tail indeed.

For example, the "subduction volcanoes" tag:

Guys, have a look at the great Globe Glider Open source project from Bernhard. We are aiming at GeoGames to stimulate the Long Tail of simulation model - beyond the mashup. Check our TakeOff: http://takeoff.geo-games.eu

Or go glide at once at: http://globeglider.net

Most curious what you see from there: http://visualcuriosity.blogs.com

I think it's just fine that Street View hasn't made it to my small town. Let's see how the privacy issues get worked out in the big towns first. That's what some of the "excitement" about Street View has been online the last couple of days - the slippery slope to invasion of privacy.

I would love to see Google release a streetview API. I don't think they have already, have they? They'll never cover the earth on their own, so why not give that opportunity to their user base?

Marcus

I don't know. Sometimes it seems to me that Google won't be happy until they cram every little aspect of our reality into the computers.

It will be a perfect digital replica. Yet somehow it will be missing a very essential essence. But then how much of the real reality to people really see? They will probably be extremely happy with a copy that can be 100% perfectly defined...

Rob

It seems to me that it would be easier to do our own long-tail Street View, rather than aerial views. They should just open it up so that people could submit their OWN Street View of their address (although I don't know how they could ever verify it). That way, you could make sure nothing incriminating was going on when the view was submitted.

Of course, stitching it together, they way they have with theirs, would be a lot harder.

I like google version better. Microsoft still has a lot more areas to cover. I'm waiting impatiently till some year 20xx, when every little corner of the earth will be digitally scanned and virtually available :)
