Tractors: Writing Tools

Google City Streets
allows the writer to explore streets that they then can use in their writing.  One can find a place and explore the streets without really being there.  A cost effective way to put realistic ideas into your writing.

The book I am currently reading, Looking for Mr. Gilbert, has listed addresses.  I can look up the houses on Google Maps and get a sense of the place the author may be trying to describe.   It would be awesome if Google maps and some gamer came together and made virtual maps of fantasy places, or not.

Excerpt from Wikipedia:

Google Street View is a technology featured inGoogle Maps and Google Earth that providespanoramic views from various positions along many streets in the world. It was launched on May 25, 2007, originally only in several cities in the United States, and has since gradually expanded to include more cities and rural areas worldwide.[1]
