Ghost estates on Streetview (Prize for the best photo?)


#1

Now that Google have launched Streetview Ireland, can we start driving around the country getting pics and locations of ghost estates?

To get us started: Ballymacoda, Co Cork goo.gl/maps/tc2T
The Meadows, Midleton: goo.gl/maps/tc2T
Carrickglass Manor, Longford: goo.gl/maps/NiJm :sick: :open_mouth:
Abhainn Glass, Edgeworthtown: goo.gl/maps/StHC

Elm Park, Dublin goo.gl/maps/nGAX

Shocking

Looks terrible.

I remember reading an article fro kevin Mcloud (Grand Designs fella) in 06 saying how Ireland had become bland and not pretty with all these eyesore developments around

I know that 2pack tried to get this going, but we really should be trying to document some of this.

If we even got 100 people doing 1 estate each, we would have an excellent visual resource of the ghost estates of Ireland.

Who’s up for it?

Tips. You roll along to your Ghost Estate and then use the compass feature top left to swivel the camera at it. The pics are sometimes outta synch so double click on the < > arrows along the white line that follows the road to go a few up and a few down the road until you find the perfect image.

Soon as you have it bang on you press SEND top right. This generates the LINK

Copy Everything that pops up in the SEND box except the < at the beginning and the > at the end

Paste it in here like


Bun na Coille aka Coill Árd, Moycullen , Co Galway

maps.google.com/?ie=UTF8&ll=53.3 … 73.25,0,5


OR


Bun na Coille aka Coill Árd, Moycullen Co Galway


On the same road this shows 2 Ghost Estates across the road from each other.

  1. Árd na h-Aislinge, Moycullen County Galway on the left

  2. Gort na Coille, Moycullen County Galway on the right

All these links are low res with not functionality?

I’ve used street view via google maps but as I said these direct links do not seem to pass on the same interactive functionality once clicked. I’,m looking at static low res unresolved Jpegs :astonished:
