The Justice Ministry authorized on Sunday Google's "Street View" feature to be brought to Israel, Army Radio reported.

Google Street View allows users to access street maps from a pedestrian's perspective, viewing roads, buildings, intersections, and even bystanders.

The program was introduced in 2007, and has been active in the United States, many European countries, Australia, South Africa, and Japan, according to the report.
