When Google Street View was first presented in Spain, we quickly saw how it was being used and adapted by real estate and travel portals. But where a tool like this can realize it´s maximum potential is when it is combined with an application like Ipoki.
The best way to see the potential use of Google Street View in Ipoki is to follow Tatexo, an imaginary user, around different cities of the world. When this post was written, Taxteo was passing through Barcelona and it´s quite impressive to think about the implications this application may have on a variety of other sectors. For example, virtual visits for tourism or better recognition of transport routes for the transportation sector, and so on.
I have to recognize that each time I become more surprised by the Ipoki team and the number of functionalities they add to their localization-based social network. With the proliferation of GPS enabled mobile phones (even more so with the iPhone) , geolocalization tools like this will become increasingly more common for users.
