Google to update street view of Slovenia

Ljubljana – US tech giant Google will update its Street View service for Slovenia, starting on 8 April, said the Information Commissioner on Friday. Slovenia was first included in the application in 2014.

Google will take new photos in a number of Slovenian cities and towns, including, among others, Ljubljana, Maribor, Škofja Loka, Murska Sobota, Črnomelj, Postojna, Kočevje, Ptuj, Kranj, Novo Mesto, Celje, Koper, Nova Gorica, Brežice, Slovenj Gradec and Grosuplje.

The Information Commissioner said that it had not received any further information, adding that more information about personal data protection was available on Google website.

Google started to capture images of Slovenia’s streets with its fleet of camera-equipped cars in the summer of 2013, whereas Street View was launched in the country in January 2014. Since then the company has been regularly updating the imagery.

Slovenia was the 55th country to be included in the application, which offers 360-degree imagery of streets and tourist sites. So far, more than 80 countries have been included in the project.
