Google Maps 3D Street Views Now Back

Google launched 3D street views on Google Maps on April 1, 2010. Many thought it was an April Fools day prank when it was dropped. But then Google said they may bring it back and it seems they did indeed bring it back.

The 3D street views man is gone, but if you right click on a street views image, you will have the option to turn "3D mode on." Here is a picture of 3D mode on:

Google Maps 3D Street Views Back

I am glad it is back, since so many people purchased 3D glasses and had nothing to do with them (I am serious).

Forum discussion at Google Blogoscoped and Google Maps Help and hat tip to Websonic.

Do you know what color glasses (blue/red; green/red) and where to get a pair of google friendly 3D glasses? I take 3D pictures and also want to post them on line. As a British Architect, I have taken some pictures of Disney Projects I've done and want to post them for people to see in 3D. Right now I use the "cross-your-eyes" technique but would rather use glasses. G

3-D WOULD BE A GREAT THING IF YOU COULD GET THE GLASSES TO VEIW IT. I HAVE BOUGHT A PAIR OF BLUE AND RED AND PAYED MONEY FOR THEM. THEY DO NOTHING. THERE IS KNOW WHERE ON LINE OF GOOGLE MAP THAT TELL PEOPLE WHAT TYPE OF GLASSES TO BE OF COLOR. STOP PLAYING GAMES AND IF YOU HAVE 3-D MAPS LETS SEE THEM.
