Microsoft goes 'Streetside' in Europe

Microsoft's 'rival to StreetView' will launch in Europe.

Cameras have begun to take pictures on London's streets as Microsoft seeks to expand Streetside, which is already available in the US.

Microsoft has said it plans to collect a 'bare minimum' of data so that it can combine its images with location-based services.
