Look up the StreetView of your residence here, and let us know how long you have had to build your secret lair it's been since Google drove by.

Mine was last visited in June 2011.

October 2012. This was before I owned the house, so that's not my car in the driveway.

My previous house was captured just this past June, so those aren't my cars either. I am apparently a member of the streetview homeless.

And it looks like I have a preference for houses that are hidden from the street by trees. Go figure.

Aug 2011. Of course street view is all you see as my residence only shows trees, a bit of old fencing & a tiny smidgen of roof. Definitely no worries about them invading privacy.

My house, Sept 2014

My mom's, Aug 2011

What I have been poking around with is the City of Milwaukee has a GIS site that has all the info on the city/county land. It has land use, ownership, tax info, and satellite pictures.

The satellite pics is the cool part. It has a slider and you can adjust it to show pictures from 2015, 2005, 1995, 1985, 1975, 1963, and 1937.

It is awesome!

Sept 2012. But they just looked down my street without actually going down it. There's nothing there anyway.

I actually a couple of years ago was behind one of their cars as it went down the road near our home for about a mile. So when you went to that spot on Google maps there I was stalking the Google maps car.

Never, even though I am in a suburb of a major metropolitan area. Google Maps has the road going into my community classified as a "private road" which may true since our HOA (not the city) is responsible for road maintenance. However, technically there is nothing to stop Google from coming down our road with their cameramobile. You can see the road going into our community from the main street, but the street view will not let you turn down it.

Well, we put that "All Googlers will be shot!" sign on our roof in May, so I guess it was before that.

Actually, I can't figure out how to determine the date. What do you have to do to get it?

Look in the upper left hand corner of street view. The date the photo was taken is there, sometimes with a slider that lets you move forward and back in time.

April 2011. Since then, many of the lawns on our street have been replaced by low water vegetation due to the drought conditions over the last half decade.

Huh, still not there. And I'm using Chrome, so you'd think it would be talking with Google. Guess my house is Top Secret.
