Is Google Street View coming to Europe?

It looks like a few more alleged invasion of privacy lawsuits could be landing on Google's desk in the near future.

According to Cnet, Google is rumoured to be gathering images for a European version of its Street View feature on Google Maps with Google branded cars spotted in Milan taking pictures and gathering 3D data.

Google have made no comment on the Chinese whispers that they are currently expanding Google Street View into Europe, but including Europe is part of the long term plans for both Google Maps and Google Earth.

So hopefully you'll soon be able to see a 360° panoramic of a drug deal from this side of the pond thanks to Google Street View. And who knows, they might even throw in a couple of fights from outside the chip shop of a Saturday for good measure.
