Google set to update street view in Baltics
Google street view cars will be driving around the Baltics to photograph tourist attractions

Google street view is set to be updated in the three Baltic States.

Google Street View cars will be driving in the region until the end of August. The aim is to photograph major cities and update maps of famous tourist destinations. Street view allows users to navigate through major cities via the google maps application.

In Lithuania, the application was launched in January 2013. It allows all internet users to virtually travel across Lithuania and have a panoramic view of Lithuanian cities and main tourist attractions.

The updates are being implemented by Estonian company Regio.

Google itself photographed Lithuanian streets, roads and touristic destination in June-July 2012. At first, the State Data Protection Inspectorate made a decision that the project contradicts people's right to privacy.

However, the State Data Protection Inspectorate partook in the legal discussion between the Ministry of Justice and Google, and found a common ground on implementing Google Street View project.

Google Street View program began in 2007.
