Google has updated its Google Maps in Malaysia by publishing Street View imagery of the country for locals.
Through the new Google Maps, the public is able to search for local destinations and where available, access Street View imagery from the imagery carousel that sits at the bottom of the screen. Google has published imagery of approximately 90% of the scenery found along peninsular Malaysia’s public roads, including major highways and tolled roads, state roads, urban centres and neighbourhoods.
“Malaysia is a diverse and constantly growing country, and by providing users and businesses with more useful map information, Street View can also help create lasting economic impact. We are pleased to be able to share these new panoramic imagery of Malaysia on Google Maps and we hope people around the world will find them useful and enjoyable too,” Sajith Sivanandan, managing director, Google Malaysia said.
Google plans continue to drive and trek across the country, with the objective of capturing updated imagery across Malaysia regularly over the coming years.
“By bringing Street View to Malaysia, Google hopes to provide Malaysians with more relevant and useful online map services and more ways of exploring both favorite and unfamiliar local spots, while also helping foster the country’s economic development through better maps,” it said in a statement.
