I've noticed Google maps has streetview in both Mexico and Guatemala right up to the border but once you cross it there is nothing in Belize.

Can anyone shed any light on this?

Many streets do not have home number address'. Google could not find many places without a street address.
A street address here goes something like "south side of the road 1/4 mile after mile marker 17 eastbound, pink and green house with the dog barking in the yard"

I'm not saying you're wrong but that seems like a weak reason.

In northern Manitoba there is street view where there aren't any streets. This is a link to street view on a trail for polar bear sightings.

Polar bear trail


A lot of the villages, towns and cities have addresses that could be tagged.

I'm sure the same situation exists in parts of Guatemala Mexico and Honduras.

You need streets to have a street view. Majority of roads are unamed in Belize. We named our own and although not on google found it accepted by Immigration within a couple of months. They used to have a guy who uploaded the names to google, but I think he got fired for making up names. Like for a particular Building in Belmopan that comes up on Google as the Carbunkle.

Our house isn't on any street: it's on the sidewalk. Our address: "across the sidewalk from Miss Lydia" would be understood by anyone living in town.

As I mentioned the link I included is not on even a road. They travel that by tundra buggy.

I've got 20 trips down to Placencia and have driven from Cancun a couple of times. I'm familiar with the road naming nomenclature used in country.

With all due respect I'm not buying the road name thing.

Are you north or south of Heavens gate?

I hear Google has a backpack mount for the street view Camera that can and has been taken on hiking trails.

That would work great on the worlds narrowest main street!

Your lack of an address works for directions. Not relevant for lack of an image.

Streetview has been taken to the tops of mountains, under water and even to the space station.

In the words of Google



Streetview on a ski trail at Keystone Colorado

Ski hill


Not much road here in the Philippines

Park

Maybe some compelling political reason?

The Gov of Belize have a monopoly mapping / imaging in the country?

I'm having a real hard time rationalizing the lack of a street name as a reason

Sell me something I'm willing to buy!
