Site ‘transforms’ the streets and avenues of Google Street View in jungles

The lack of green areas in large cities was settled by a Swedish programmer in the virtual world. Einar Oberg created the “Urban Jungle Street View” site, which shows the streets and buildings displayed by the tool Google covered by grass, trees and plants (See here: http://inear.se/urbanjungle/).

“Watch out for snakes,” tweeted Öberg. In conversations with other Twitterers, the programmer said the change was made possible by the use of Google Maps information in a manner not provided by Google. “Breaking terms like there’s no tomorrow,” he wrote on Friday (14).

Access to the site is possible only in Google Chrome. Visual closely resembles the post-apocalyptic setting of the film “I Am Legend” starring Will Smith. See below how was the Paulista Avenue, in São Paulo, with the look of the forest.

On other occasions in which programmers hacked the development package Mpas Google, Google closed maps.
