Google maps comes to Cambridge

Google Maps with Directions FeatureImage via WikipediaWhilst others were muttering about the Google maps car going up and down the streets of Cambridge, I had nothing to hide.  The young driver said that it will take a year or so before the pictures are on Google maps so look out for a cyclists waving on Derby Street, Newnham, Cambridge, England.

I wish I had been on a tandem!   Sadly my face will be obscured when the maps are published.  Do they do this by hand or is there some clever algorithm working automatically?
