Google Street View Now Shows Changes Over Time

Google Maps has made it available for users to view archived Street View images. Angie Schmitt, from Streetsblog, pointed out that this capability “means it’s easier than ever to show what streets looked like before and after a redesign.” This strategy can help us view the White Flint District in a different light. As the redevelopment continues, we will be able to see even more changes across the district. You can also add your own photos to make sure the view is up-to-date, which is a great feature as well.

Below you can find images of intersections in the White Flint district and how they used to look.
