Street View Page on Israel/Jerusalem


Google Street View is available through Google Maps and Google Earth and provides panoramic views along many streets in the world. It was started in 2007 in the United States and has since expanded to include a large number of countries. Some countries have objected to this form of data gathering and have not allowed Google to take the imagery, Germany being the main hold-out. Available Street View imagery available is shown as blue lines on Google Maps once the so-called pegman has been activated. Images are most often taken by car but a variety of other modes of transport have been used. Once captured, the images are subsequently stitched together. In some areas, Street View images are augmented by privately-done photospheres.

4 Moore's Where to Invade Next

Moore's documentary is politically polarizing. Conservative columnists, such as Armon White, are sharply critical of the movie. First, comment on the validity of White's negative review. Then, putting aside politics, what can the movie show us about the value of travel in understanding our own country.

I agree with their criticism of this movie.First off did he bring back ideas to talk about from other countries or was his film the mode in which he did that because I never heard of any bright new ideas from Moore.His films like to be one sided and stir the pot.The intro about the joint chiefs meeting and the wars had nothing to do with this film it was pointless.He traveled around bashing America and he said it best himself when in Italy he is only there to pick the flowers not the weeds.You canít bash America and show how wonderful another country is with out showing the bad that each country also had to go through which he only did when he was in Germany.This was a small picture of how some things in certain locations of a country may do things better than the U.S. this was a very micro observation.It did make me think a little bit about some of our systems and programs and their differences but that was it.†††
