Launches Street View in Greece

5 Jun, 2014

Google launches its Street View map service in Greece after it receives approval from the Data Protection Authority of the country. The privacy authority had objected to the service in 2009 and after protracted negotiations accorded approval for the service. Greece becomes the 56th country where the map service is available. Greece expects Google’s service to benefit the country’s beleaguered tourism industry.
