Im going to try and get other businesses to do it because I recon they will go to a cluster of places first as its worth comming out. Or they may work on a tipping principle ie when more than X number of places ask to be on then they go there.

Thanks, I filled it out as well. However, to get street view first - they seem to "forget" back roads...

Thanks JB, I just filled out the app.  We're not in a major city, so I won't hold my breath....

Surely they're only doing it with the owner's permission.

I wouldn't mind it a bit, as long as I had control over when they photograph and what area they photograph. Of course, their photos will never show things as well as the professional photos on your website, but Street View users are accustomed to that.

The article says Google picks, you have no choice. You can request that photos be removed only after they've been put up. You have to sign up to have them come out to take the photos but you don't get to pick what they photograph.

Oddly, we are required to post photos of the inside of our buildings or no one would come and stay!

 We'll get interior shots when Google Street View maps cow paths.
