Today I took a couple of photos of Google Street View car in Old Riga, Latvia. Soon we will have competition to our local Yellow Pages company 1188 that have similar street view project 1188 360 Map.

They (Google) are using vehicles registered in Germany. And apparently they are getting help from our neighbors Estonians. Regio.ee logo on their vehicles are from Premium map publisher in the Estonia.
