Update 2012 - Google Maps directly has Phuket Street View. Try it! MapJack does non seem to get got been updated since I wrote this inward 2009.

I get-go heard of MapJack a distich of years ago, which was almost when it started. It's really similar to Google Street View (available equally business office of Google Maps), which was launched almost the same time. The thought alongside both - to map towns together with cities alongside street stance images. The MapJack images are taken yesteryear photographic tv set camera operators on human foot or inward vehicles. Every few meters, a novel 360 grade image. Every street, every building.... seat it all together together with y'all tin laissez passer on the sack "walk" around your ain town, or places y'all get got been or desire to visit. It's nonetheless inward its infancy of course, roofing some the US cities (MapJack started alongside San Francisco) together with (for reasons I am non clear about) quite a lot of places inward Thailand too. Chiang Mai was added get-go together with now... Phuket!

Google Maps has a lot to a greater extent than coverage - loads of cities inward the the US together with Europe, but MapJack, which claims to last run on a shoestring budget, is doing Thailand. Hurrah!

Things await really dissimilar to 10 years agone when I arrived. Google Earth is some other cracking tool, but some of the images of Phuket are over v years one-time now, though are updated directly together with then
