I've just been looking at Street View in Whitman Way, Carlsbad, San Diego. It seems very poor quality compared to the UK. Here's a typical example:

7230

Why this great difference please?

Not positive on this, but I think it's because most of the US imagery is older and back then they used different, lower quality cameras. I know some cities (like Las Vegas) used to be low quality but were redone in higher quality.

Thanks, that makes sense. (Nice to see UK ahead of the USA for once!)
