I like to share interesting posts and information about internet marketing that read in my Google reader. Let me sort through the junk to bring you the real goods when comes to local internet marketing for small businesses. I thought this was super useful. if you like it be sure to share maybe subscribe to the authors blog: http://googlemapsmania.blogspot.com/ Google has updated the Street View imagery in the areas of north-eastern Japan affected by the March 11 earthquake and tsunami. More than 44,000 kilometers of the affected region now has new 360-degree panoramic imagery available through the Street View feature in Google Maps.

Onagawa, Oshika District – after the tsunami

The same view – before the tsunami

Google have also released a special website, called Build the Memory, where you can compare the before and after Street View images of the towns affected by these events.

Build the Memory really is a powerful reminder of the effect of this disaster on the homes, businesses and lives of the Japanese people. Let’s hope that in a couple of years Google can update the Street View imagery again to show these towns and communities rebuilt and thriving again.
