Great Idea: New Google Maps Site Lets You See Street Art From Around the World

by Cord Jefferson

February 20, 2011

Hot on the heels of Google's "Art Project," a street view functionality that allows users to explore museums around the world, Red Bull has introduced "Street Art View."

Using Google Maps and crowdsourced data from around the world, Street Art View is an ever-changing site that lets visitors explore murals, stenciling, and other graffiti from countries around the globe, or suggest their own favorite pieces.

Jump from Canada to Spain to South Africa to Japan—where the above image was taken—all without leaving your desk. You can even search by artist, all the better to see just how far Banksy's reach has become.
