Nigeria Debuts On Google Street View With Lagos Coverage. by scholes0(m): 12:30pm On Jul 28, 2017
Google Street View Is Now Available In Nigeria



StreetView is available in major areas of Lagos and the tech giant is looking to make the feature available across the country soon.
If you don’t know what Google StreetView is, I’ll break it down for you: it is a super handy feature on Google Maps that lets you view panoramic images of, well, streets.
Basically, you will be able view 360-degree images of streets and you can do that now because the feature is now available in Nigeria, starting with Lagos.







Suren Ruhela, who leads Google Maps for emerging countries, made the announcement at the Google For Nigeria event which took place at the Landmark Event Center, Victoria Island, Lagos, yesterday, Thursday, July 27, 2017.
The Google exec, in his announcement, stated that StreetView is available in major areas of Lagos and the tech giant is looking to make the feature available across the country soon.



In addition to StreetView, Ruhela also announced that thousands of new addresses have been added to Maps to improve adress search experience for users.
Detailed outlines of buildings, both residential and commercial, have also been added to Maps of Nigeria so users can get details as close to the real deal as possible.
More than 100,000 new small and medium-scale businesses have also been added to Maps to improve your experience and the quality of Google Maps.

In another announcement, Ruhela also stated that the number of Nigerians who use Maps have doubled in the past year, adding that Google’s Local Guides program now has over 100,000 people in its network.
You can check out Google StreetView by clicking on the figurine located at the bottom of the zoom buttons on Google Maps.

It is useless if it can't find Buhari, the kidnapped school kids in Epe or the remaining Chibok girls and Shekau.

boys like you are the problem of Africa,so because it took USA more than. 200years to get to where it is,we also have to wait for that long...how many years does it take Singapore,China,Malaysia,Botswana,UAE,Qatar,India and so many more

This is scary.

The next step is to match your phone number to your address once phone is tracked using GPRS contours.

Time to go dark my friends, time to go really dark.

Developed countries is not been determined by their years of independence but by the good heart of leadership who govern those country.
By your assertion Ethiopia and Lesotho should be the giants of Africa because they were never under the siege of European conolization
South Africa got theirs some years back (1994 or so) yet Nigeria can't withstand them in term of infrastructure, SA have over 30,000 of megawatts of power while Nigeria still battling with 4,000, I think the problem is we got our independence earlier, Nigeria will be better off if we got it about 10 -15 years ago
