Latest Google acquisition: ImageAmerica
The move will allow Google to update the imagery in Google Maps and Google Earth.
No word on how much Google paid for this latest acquisition or how long we'll have to wait before we see the new images start to appear. Product Manager Stephen Chau says Google is still in the research and development phase, so it could be a while.
In the meantime, voyeurs looking for up close and personal views of city streets will have to bide their time with Google's recently announced and somewhat creepy Street View feature.
