After Chatroulette’s success, there are a number of websites adding that ‘random’ touch to their services. MapCrunch is one site that has mashed up randomness with Google’s Street View feature.
MapCrunch is a free to use website. Its function is quite simple: it displays random Google Street View locations on the globe. If you want, you can specify the area by jumping around the view; you can also specify via continent and country.
The next random view can be seen either by clicking on a button or setting up the slideshow and a time limit after which a new view is shown. Location of the view is geographically represented on the map in the bottom right.
The site makes Google Street View a lot more fun and is a neat little tool to check out.
