Here is an example of how a Google Street View map can be useful. If someone needed to know where a short-cut was to
The Strip...say they wished to get from the Palms to the Mirage Hotel quickly (without have to deal with traffic
on Las Vegas
Boulevard) you could show the person a regular map and try telling him/her that there is a backroad that runs parrallel
to the Strip and leads to the back of many Strip hotels and their parking garages. For example:Dean Martin Drive and Industrial Road. If they cannot understand a map drawing, you can show them a photographic'Street View' and
allow them to be more aware of the setting and location as it appears in real life.
This photo-map shows the Rio Hotel. If someone needed to know what the location is like - you can move the map a bit
to the left and show them what Flamingo Road looks like when traveling west. They could see how close the Gold Coast
or Palms Hotel is in relation to the Rio. You could even click the 'street-arrow' and take show them the actual Valley
entrance into the Gold Coast Parking Garage. If you wanted to show them the short-cut to the Mirage you could simply turn
the map 180 degress and show them where 'Hotel Rio Drive' (notice the bus and Outback Steakhouse sign) and tell
to take this road and turn left at the first light and continue north along Industrial until they see the back of Mirage.
