Google Street View data anything but complete for Belgium
On December 14, 2017 Google made the Belgian Street View images photographed in 2017 available to their users. For the municipalities Edegem and Kontich and for the city of Antwerp I checked the Street View images in detail to see when these images were photographed. According to the results they appear to be far less complete than the images made in the years 2008-2009. A sample survey in the rest of Belgium confirms these results. This means that for most places in Belgium the most recent Street View images are almost 10 years old. Furthermore it’s not to be expected there will be updates in the next couple of years.

A while ago I found the following website full of ZipScribble Maps. But Belgium was missing at the time so I made one myself. Now they also do have one for Belgium. A ZipScribble Map connects all Zip codes in a country in numerical order. Above is my own result.
