Explore the National Botanic Gardens in Dublin with Google Street View

Last year Google made available 80,000 kilometres of panoramic imagery of Irish streets and roads to access freely in Google Street View. Along with the Google car, Google utilised the Trike to capture difficult, inaccessible areas of special interest. Today we see one such release as images of the National Botanic Gardens in Dublin are introduced, allowing path-by-path exploration of the beautiful plant collection.

Google Maps shows high resolution Aviva Stadium under construction

Google’s recent update of its Irish Google maps images, which we reported on yesterday contains high resolution images of the €410 million, 63,802 sq.m Aviva Stadium under construction. The stadium, which was built for between 2007 and 2010 can be seen in the early part of its construction – probably during the first six months of 2009, before the roof was added or pitch constructed (in November 2009). This would match the time Google’s Streetview cars were collecting images in Ireland. The satellite imagery shows cranes in the stadium constructing the stands.
