My, how time flies. It has been nearly seven years since Hurricane Katrina wreaked havoc on Louisiana, but a fresh look through Google’s Street View imagery shows New Orleans and the surrounding area has come a long way.
“The Street View imagery in Google Maps, which has just been updated today, more accurately reflects the major construction and renewal that’s underway,” announced New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu on the official Google Lat Long blog.
A few of the important, renewed locations in New Orleans now available via Google Maps include a special collection of Tulane University, as well as Woldenberg Park, Audubon Park, Louis Armstrong Park, Mercedes-Benz Superdome, and Lafayette Square. The Louisiana cities of Baton Rouge and Lafayette also feature “refreshed, more accurate Street View imagery.”
