CNET Editor

Michelle Starr is the tiger force at the core of all things. She also writes about cool stuff and apps as CNET Australia's Crave editor. But mostly the tiger force thing.

Sometimes Google's Street View vehicles just can't go any farther. The Atlantic's Alan Taylor took a pictorial look at the reasons why.

Google Street View has ways of getting places. There are its fleet of cars, its tricycles for places without roads, SCUBA divers for the ocean and even user-generated content.

Nevertheless, there's always, inevitably, an end to the road. Naturally, sometimes this is because the land just plumb runs out. But there are a number of other reasons why Google's cameras have not been able to proceed, from the natural to the man made.
