vPike: A Handy Google Map and Street View at Its Best


vPike is the new way to locate an area, it is a website that has been formulated to work hand in hand with Google maps and Google Street View to locate an area, or to have a general view of the place, right down to individual streets. The word vPike is actually wordplay on the words virtual turnpike. A turnpike is a pathway that one pays to use, while virtual means something that is existent but is not actually tangible, in this sense meaning that it is online. It is the one stop site for all the satellite-imaging needs one can have. vpike

The Benefits of vPike

Gone are the days when one had to use a map to locate an area. The maps had to be quite large and the ones that were compact had very little details, and thus were not of much use either. In addition, such maps did not have imaging on them. With vPike, you can get images of the places that you wish to see, in clear view; one can almost picture oneself there. With vPike, you also get up-to-date street information, since the servers are frequently updated. This is quite helpful, keeping in mind that with the urban development, the design, and structure of various areas is changing rapidly, thus making maps obsolete quite fast. These days, mobility and convenience is everything. You do not need to have your computer in order to see the areas that you need. vPike can work from any Smartphone or any handheld device. This makes it easier to use even when you are travelling. VPike comes with 360-degree 3-dimensional view, which gives clear, sharp images of an entire street, an area, or a specific landmark. This is a clarity that cannot be captured on a normal camera. Anyone who wishes to create a publication such as a journal or a book can get the images of the places that they wish through vPike, without necessarily having to visit the specific places and get pictures of the place. All one needs to do is log on to the website, and after getting the required permission, they can extract the data needed. This method is the safest way of getting photos in the instances of natural disasters such as volcanic eruptions and floods.
