A very long street spanning from the center of Prague to to Kostelec nad Černými Lesy (30km). It does change its name a few times, however, but then it changes it back. The names are Černokostelecká, Kutnohorská, Pražská, Přátelství and U Mototechny.
These are the horrendous death camps built by *** (um, it's censored for some reason) Germany during the holocaust in WW2. The locations are in the village or in the general area in the town (one had to be a photosphere).
I believe it is mainly a hilly terrain that makes a landscape beautiful. So this map, inspired by KillerMapper's "A Coastal World" features only places in or surrounded by mountains. Note: Balancing in progress!
After the Faroe Islands turned out to be relatively easy because you can see the fjord shapes pretty clearly, I thought I‘d do Lofoten (from Røstlandet in the S-W to Gimsøysand in the N-E) as well. These will probably be much, much harder, though.
This is Prague once again, but this time NOT HAND-PICKED, but made with the new region-selecting feature. That means the locations are not guaranteed to be good or balanced, but there's a lot more of them. It works pretty well, though. :)
These are locations of these famous albums (unfortunately one had to be a photosphere):
Pink Floyd: Animals; The Beatles: Abbey Road; Led Zeppelin: Houses of the Holy; Rush: Moving Pictures; Tame Impala: Lonerism.
Vol.2 features slightly less known albums:
Wilco: Yankee Hotel Foxtrot; Neil Young: After the Gold Rush; Temples: Sun Structures; Yes: Going for the One; Unknown Mortal Orchestra: Unknown Mortal Orchestra.
For testing purposes, I put the entire world into polygons. That way we can find out more about how the new map-making feature works and what sorts of locations it tends to pick.

Germany is barely on Street View at all, but this is the few cities that are. ;) I tried to minimize the appearance of highways (as this is made with the new polygons map-making feature, NOT HAND-PICKED), but some are still there.
"Polygonal" means it uses the new map-making feature and that means there are thousands of possible locations (so the map can be replayed a lot of times), but they are not guaranteed to be good. Also, SOME CITIES MAY APPEAR MORE THAN OTHERS.
Can you tell what European (or close to Europe) capital this is? Did you know it was a capital? Have you even heard of it? Or did you know it was a country?
There are others that I think are even less known, but they are not on street view...
Map made for the No Map Zooming challenge, where you can move in street view, but cannot zoom in on the map. This is a map with some better known European cities. Well, YOU CAN ZOOM IN ONCE, because it's zoomed out unnecessarily.
These are some better known city-states of Ancient Greece (which included pretty much the whole Mediterranean), although some have changed their names: Byzantium=Istanbul, Kallipolis=Gelibolu, Ephesus=Kuşadası, Halicarnassus=Bodrum, Heraclea=Policoro
This is a polygonal (which means NOT HAND-PICKED) map of all of France, only without Paris, because otherwise Paris would be all you ever get. Unfortunately, most locations are still near Paris, but that's as good as I could get it.
This is a polygonal map of the Czech republic (Czechia), which means it can be more or less any location, the locations are NOT HAND-PICKED, so good locations are not guaranteed, but there are a lot. I will make a hand-picked map as well later.
Locations (NOT HAND-PICKED) in Sudetenland (Sudety), the border parts of Czechoslovakia (now the Czech republic) until after WW2 inhabited mainly by Germans until their violent expulsion after the war.
The first map in my "Former" series: Locations in the Roman Empire in its territorial peak in 117 AD - ranging from the rainy hills of Britannia, through the lush woods of Dacia, to the ragged deserts of Judea.
Next in my "Former" series (states that no longer exist), here's *** Germany - not including just occupied countries, only those part of the government (Germany, Austria, Poland, Protectorate of Bohemia+Moravia, a part of Slovenia, of Ukraine...)
(Work in progress) Based on what GeoGuessrWizard said in one of his videos: Only the parts of the world (not necessarily countries) that do not appear on the official world map very often. I tried to keep them as unique / beautiful as possible.
All the provincial, autonomous and sub-provincial capitals of the People's Republic of China. Since China does not have street view, it's all photospheres (including places that do have sw, for clue reduction).
OK, it's not all borders, only those that have Street View, so there are NO PHOTOSPHERES. I was going make a full version as well where it will truly be ALL borders, with photospheres, but some borders don't even have that. City-states are included.
A map with places all over China - including Hong Kong, Macao or Tibet, not including Taiwan (this is quite an arbitrary decision, nothing political). I tried to pick places that didn't look too generic. (There's no street view in China.)
