Stealth street camera car in South Bayview

Nokia is imaging all GTA streets

I spotted a mysterious, unmarked street camera car at Pottery and Moore today.

Nokia street camera car

The friendly driver, a young man from the Chicago area, explained that he works for Nokia, and that there are two cars currently mapping the Greater Toronto Area at street level for here.com. The effort will take several months, he said.

I looked at the Pottery Road and Don Valley area to evaluate here.com's Maps 3D feature, and it's awesome (note: requires WebGL, not supported in Internet Explorer without a plugin). Let's hope their upcoming street view images are just as spectacular.
