Google Street View offers sneak-peak of Germany

Google has launched its first photos of a German city in its Street View program, after months of dispute over whether the 3-D mapping service invades privacy.
Pictures of the Bavarian village of Oberstaufen, in the foothills of the Alps, were available through Google's mapping program on Tuesday, as were interior views of stadiums and several tourist attractions. The company, based in California, plans to go online with 3-D views of 20 other German cities later this month.
More than 244,000 Germans requested before the program's launch here that images of their homes be pixellated on Street View.
