Google Earth Street View

Recommended Posts

We found a mark today in Elma, Washington. Not a remarkable find in most ways, but it was fun to discover that it is visible in Google Earth's Street View. See our log for SY1403, R 479

 

Cheers,

Okay. Took me a while to find one. Google Streets wants to put me on the overpass, not underneath.

Here is KV0067 in Elizabeth, NJ.

What a fun way to spend a few hours!

Oh, this should be fun! Google Street view is very helpful in some cases with marks.

 

Do the ones I found already at least.

Attempted to photo this, but traffic was ridiculously bad and I didn't even attempt to cross. DI2801

I almost got arrested by the MP's from the base next door trying to take a picture of this one: TU0650(?)

What are the odds of catching a scene like this in Street View at one of your marks (KV2873)?

About as rare as hen's teeth as seeing it in real life and using the BM to boot. (TU0865)

In order to log a mark you need to be sure it is the mark you think it is. To do that you need to read any markings on the disk that tell you what it is. On GC there are a lot of logs of the reference marks or a different mark from the one that it is suppose to be.

 

Street view is great for scoping out the location to compare with the description and to see if there is a place to get off the road etc.

 

Any log made only from street view would be unreliable.
