Roads you have photos for that GSV does not
« on: October 08, 2022, 10:52:56 AM »

This topic came up in another thread.  I have quite a few notables in my photo collection which aren’t on GSV.  Below is a random sampling:

I think the only significant road I have pictures of that GSV doesn't is AZ State Route 273.

Picked up photos of abandoned Foresta Road in Yosemite and Stanislaus National Forest recently which isn’t on GSV:

Got pictures of the Magruder Road in Montana and Idaho last summer.

Also have pics of KY 199 (the gravel portion) that even KYTC's cameras don't cover.

I'm sure I have road photos from some of the more desolate state highways out west that Google either doesn't cover or only has 2007-quality imagery for.

This is pretty easy with unpaved roads...

The 07-09 images certainly comprise way more harrowing roads than modern GSV images do.

Actually, I forgot about the new section of SR 24, Google hasn't been there yet.

Not a picture, but a video, but I've got the entirety of the back way into Burkes Garden, while GSV has nothing:

If I were to count pictures taken on streets that GSV doesn't include because they're either in gated communities or otherwise considered to be "private," I'm sure I have a fair number.

Anyone who has photos of German roads qualify.

There's still user-submitted coverage of some German roads.

Yeah. Entering the valley I came in via Gratton.

Speaking of 199, I have a bunch of QC 199 pictures.

They're not pictures, but I have dashcam videos of quite a few old highway alignments in southern Iowa that GSV is too cowardly to drive has enough sense to avoid.

I would like to have some pictures of Garzweiler mining area in North Rhine-Westphalia. It is very interesting, but GSV does not have any pictures from this area.
