Rather neatly, Hawaii has become the 50th US state to be pictured in Street View on Google Maps. Offering imagery of Oahu and Maui, the site has categorised collections including "hometown favourites of President Obama".

Although no doubt Scunthorpe, Glasgow and Swansea offer some delightful aspects in Street View, the Hawaiian vistas could be said to be particularly picturesque - for beach lovers, at least.

In addition, Street View has added imagery from Mexico for the first time, covering Mexico City, Monterrey, Guadalajara, Puebla, Puerto Vallarta, Cancun, Playa del Carmen and Cozumel.
