Google Begins to Add Street View to South Africa

Google has announced that they are beginning to add street view in South Africa using a fleet of Priuses with their usual cameras mounted on top. Google cites an increase in interest about South Africa due the country hosting the 2010 FIFA World Cup as the reason for it working on street view there. Street view will initially be supported in Johannesburg, Cape Town, Pretoria, Port Elizabeth and Durban.

As with other places where Google supports street view, face and license plate blurring will be applied and people will be able to report images that they think require additional blurring or removal.
