Google zooms to my library

Or at least, pretty darn near. We’re talking about the super zoom capabilities of Google’s "Street View" choice available in Google maps for some cities. ¬†Boise, by the way, has been mapped with Street View technology and now you can literally drive around Boise and grab, rotate, and move the map window along the same pathway the car/van that Google employed to snap pictures to get around the city.

What’s even cooler is that you can embed your particular street view map, with grab, zoom, and moves right into your blog (well, not WordPress ones). Simply find a street-view enabled map in Google Maps, click on the "Link to this page" and you’ll get the code to embed it anywhere you please, thusly (this is the north side of the Albertsons Library):

If you drag it to your left, you can see me waving (kidding!).
