Other Views Section

Google Street View

Google Street View is a technology feature in Google Maps and Google Earth that provides 360 degree horizontal and 290 degree vertical panoramic views from a row of positions along the street (one every approximately 10 or 20 meters) for many streets in the world, from a heightf about 2.5 meters. It was launched on May 25, 2007, and has gradually expanded to include more cities, more streets, and more rural areas.

Oblique Imagery

Oblique refers to the angle at which an image is captured (oblique images are typically captured at a 40 degree angle). By capturing images at this angle, as opposed to a straight down or overhead shot, oblique images reveal greater detail, enabling users to see different views of an image and notice relevant details such as street lights, fire hydrants etc. With oblique imagery, for example, you can see the front door of a house, the back door, the windows and more. Boulder County has acquired the rights to serve oblique imagery captured and hosted by Pictometry International Corporation.

City of Boulder

The City of Boulder maintains its own property search application. If your property is located in the city’s limits, this link will take you to their information.
