Google Adds Street View to Hawaii, Int'l Locations; Latitude Gets History and Location Alerts

The Google Earth and Maps Team has been hard at work unloading a bunch of updates. First up, Street View images for the state of Hawaii have been added. Now, all 50 states have Street View.

Additionally, Street View imagery has been added to 5 cities in Mexico, "huge swathes" of Spain, and 30 towns in the Netherlands.

Meanwhile, new updates have come to Latitude. You can now track the history of where you've been. This history is not made available to your friends.

But speaking of your friends, you can now get alerts when they're nearby (and using Latitude, of course). This will keep you from having to check Latitude constantly to see if anyone is nearby.

What do you think of these Google Maps updates? Let us know by leaving a comment.
