MapJack – Sneak Peak at Flash Street View (Beta)

By August 10, 2007 2 Comments

After our side by side comparasion of MapJack, Everyscape and Google’s Street View a couple of days ago the people behind MapJack have been in touch with regards a new beta version running in flash.

Screen grabbed above the new version, planned to preview next week, is an interesting take on the street view concept. Firstly, it allows the user to navigate via the keyboard, creating a semi-immersive way to visualise the city. This interface change is definitely preferable to clicking on hotspots to move onto the next view.

Simple image transitions are also now in place and via a toolbar the way the images are viewed can be changed – note the projection option:

The beta version is well worth a look, the guys behind MapJack have kindly agreed to allow us to publish a sneak look:

Let us know any thoughts…
