Google Street View - Journey to Work

Post by Jimbox01 »

Nothing better to do last night, so what the heck!
Be interested to see the google view of other peoples' regular journeys.

A pleasant concept:

I'll not do my local bit, which is 3 minute walk to the train station, but I'll start from when I get into Glasgow.

The way I walk to work:
Image

Central Station:
Image

Walking along Gordon Street:
Image

Buchanan Street:
Image

Past the Art Gallery (not the cone on statue, this is a standard of our City:
Image

George Square:
Image

Over to the Royal College Building:
Image

Up the hill to building where I work. Actually, you can see my lab windows from the photo, so I marked them:

A couple of years ago, 'work' was my grandparents' garden. Unfortunately the Google Street View car drove past, and took... this.

I'm far less blurry in real life, but yeah that's me.

My arms are a bit bulkier now though :blush:

Glasgow looks pretty cool, only ever been once, and that was about a zillion years ago.

Can't do the street view thing 'cos I don't think we've been Googled up here yet.
Can give co-ordinates for satellite view
Home (with the black roof) 63.742359 - 68.500700
work (opposite post office) 63.748353 - 68.521122

In the summer a fifteen minute walk and not very pretty, in the winter a five minute snowmobile ride which is a bit more picturesque (and only slightly bloody freezing)

Not sure sure if you're the most northerly forum member, but I should think your probably one of the most remote - and cold!
I can see why Google haven't made it there yet. :)

I'm almost 100% sure they're not the most northerly forum member, there are so many fans from the Fennoscandian area someone is guaranteed to be farther north than that. If we have someone from Svalbard, the game should be clear with that. Most remote I won't comment on, but Iqaluit does have an airport, which is something not every city with 6700 inhabitants can boast with. :nod:

As for my journey to work you'll never get it [evil laugh], but in response to tufty's post, I have been captured by the Google Maps car as well. I'm hesitant to posting it here, but now you know.

I got captured with my dad & brother

I'm not posting any images as I am making a pose that is not the best to share (I did it deliberately too)

My route is a boring dual carriageway into the outskirts of town - literally nothing exciting except a green bridge & an eagle
Close doesn't count

If it's for fear of our reaction, you can post it as long as you're not flashing.

Snowdon's my other home, so that works out I guess! Actually, on a side note, do you fancy joining me on aforementioned mountain for Children in Need?
