All about Daum’s “road view” (kind of like Google Street View)

Posted on pagef30.com

This service was released in January of this year and I don’t think it’s gotten the fanfare it deserves. Daum is kind of comparable to Microsoft in that it was first on the scene when the internet first became well-known in the 90s, and for a while it was the site to go to. It was eventually replaced by Naver as the number one search engine and portal. This time though they’ve beaten their competitors to the punch by investing a ton of money to drive around Seoul and Gyeonggi-do (the province surrounding the capital city) and create their version of Street View, which they call Road View (로드뷰). Here’s what it looks like:

This is an intersection by COEX (an international convention centre) and a temple known as Bongeun-sa, where all the friendly cats are. The interface is all in Korean though so I’ll explain how to use it (it’s almost the same).

Daum to unveil new map service,(street-level photography)

Daum Communications is preparing to launch a new beta for their map service with new high-resolution aerial and street-level photography to compete with Google and Naver for traffic:

Although company officials are reluctant to comment on costs, Daum is believed to be spending over 20 billion won to develop the new service, collaborating with SamAh Aerial Survey for the aerial photos and Pix Korea for the street-level images.

It took a year for Daum to build the database, which covers virtually the entire country including Seoul and the neighboring Gyeonggi Province areas, the six metropolitan cities and Jeju Island.


PIXKOREA (Korean) has a demo on their website.
