Israel’s ministry of Justice approved the use of Google Street view in Israel, after a poll conducted by the Israeli Government Services and Information portal showed that 70% out of the 5,000 respondents were in favor of the Service, according to Globes.
Most chances are that you are already familiar with Google Street View, which provides Google Maps users with the ability to visually navigate on the map on the street level. The service already operates many major cities around the world, 17 leading museums, and most recently was also used in the deep jungles of the Amazon rain forests in Brazil.
Relating to privacy issues, the Justice Ministry says Street View users in Israel will be offered an efficient, reliable way to blur images of license plates, places of residence and other objects.
The service is not yet operational in Israel, but hopefully soon, you may be able to conduct virtual pilgrimage or stroll down the narrow streets of Neve Tzedek from the comfort of your desk.
