It may be somewhat geeky (really geeky?), but I'm really glad to see New Mexico added to the growing library of what's available in Google's Street View. Here at UNM's ARTS Lab, we sometimes worry that people can't find us (especially when some folks list us at the corner of Central and University — which is about a block away). We have our location on Google Maps, and a link at our site, but… we still worry.
Street View probably won't change all of that, but now we can point people here: http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&hl;=en&ie;=UTF8&om;=1&layer;=c≪=35.100389,-106.623602&spn;=0.037639,0.118275&z;=14&cbll;=35.081468,-106.627426&cbp;=2,333.96874437572427,,0,1.4481514654278567
And being pretty recent, they're also fairly thorough. They don't actually have Pine St. where we're located, but they do come reasonably close to Albuquerque Studios
Or, for another example, you might want to check out the NM Film Office. Now you can, with a nice shot right here:
Do they hit all of New Mexico? Well, as usual, they tend to concentrate on the center of the state, reaching south of Belen and Los Lunas, and a little bit east and west of Albuquerque. From what our Department of Transportation tells me, we've got a lot of road to cover here, so we may have to wait for a while.
