According to the Times of India (TOI) – “Wonobo street view is being launched initially for 12 cities — Mumbai, Delhi, Bangalore, Chennai, Hyderabad, Ahmedabad, Surat, Jaipur, Costal Goa, Kolkata, Agra, Pune. The remaining 42 cities will be launched over the following weeks.”
It has been a while, since Google has been struggling with Indian authorities to gain permission for taking images of various cities across India. While the search engine giant continues its struggle, a small Indian mapping company, based in Mumbai has done all that Google had planned and even more for the top 54 Indian cities. Founded in 1995, by brothers – Sol and Sajid Malik, Genesys International has taken images of almost every street in the top 54 Indian cities and then has joined them to create a panoramic view of the streets and this is exactly what Google has done in many other parts of the world. On Tuesday the company launched a service under a fun brand name Wonobo (wonobo.com).
