Happy St. Patrick’s Day
To celebrate St. Patrick’s Day and the almost one year anniversary of Google Street View Ireland, here is an enjoyable interview with Ed Parsons, Geospatial Technologist for Google Street View, discussing the launch of Google Street View Ireland for almost every urban center and rural road in Ireland. I have also included great video Google Street View Ireland in the Irish Language version. I make no claims for what they are saying but it has some very good graphics. And for your enjoyment a fun project that was done for Milford Hospice in Ireland by Interactive Media UL to use Google Street View Ireland and sensors to create a “real” interactive bike riding experience. The project, “Escapism, pedal through Google StreetView on a Stationary Bike” was created as part of a Masters of Science in Interactive Media at The University of Limerick, Ireland by Colette Moloney.
