Street side images on maps are terrific but they can be problematic at times as you get stuck in the bubble of the camera view and struggle to get a real world perspective on the street. Step in Street Slide from Microsoft Research. Presented at SIGGRAPH 2010 this week, Street Slide gives you a strip view of the street. As always, seeing it is much easier then being told so check out the video above. If you’re hardcore, you’ll read the full PDF from the MSR team behind this. I have. Just kidding. No I’m not.

I love comments like this on Twitter this evening and the blog coverage Smile
