Google Street View is launching this Fall in Germany.

Google is preparing to launch Google Street View in Germany this fall. Until mid-October Germans still can send an request to Google to remove photos of their home from Google Street View. According to sources of Spiegel Magazine, several hundred thousands did already that. This would mean that Google has a ton of work to do and German Google Street View will have lots of empty spots.

Google did not respond to this report yet. Google's Street View got already a lot of heat in Germany from consumer protection agencies and than their was this whole Wi-Fi scanning scandal.

Google Street View will only offer 20 cities in Germany at launch. if the numbers are true, Google might have to postpone the launch to process all the requests.
