I'm gonna need a second opinion with this one.   Can I confirm this one, or should I keep looking?

The house is a totally different shape & size etc, but the decorative features are identical.

 

Real life.  8660 Hollywood Blvd, Hollywood Hills.

In game.  Mad Wayne Thunder Dr, Vinewood Hills.

I'd say confirm it. It's got a different design but is close enough, with that single, circular window and slope-like roof design.

Edward, I think the Compton City Hall & the Sherriff's building next door have already been identified.  Here are some pictures though.

Thought I would try to find the mansions near Vinewood Reservoir, but no luck.

All of the homes near the real life Hollywood Reservoir are all nice, but more modest in size.

I think the mansions in the game represent the Beverly Park Estate near the Franklin Reservoir in real life.

It is a wealthy, gated community with multi million dollar mansions for the rich & famous, but of course there is no google streetview.

But hold on to your hats, I did find the Lake Vinewood Estate sign.  It's in the correct location in real life.

Hey guys !

 

I just read the article about our mapping project on Eurogamer !

I believe most of you must have read it already but it is a really great piece.

A big thank you to Craig Owens, the writer and to all of you who answered his questions.

The article is below :

http://www.eurogamer...ping-los-santos

 

Also, I was contacted by another game journalist so another article should be online soon at this adress :

http://www.kcet.org/arts/artbound/

It seems like people are ignoring and disregarding this. :/

 

Good job, Fido.  :^:

Echo Park is called Mirror Park in the game.

It won't be any different to what we have now. Better textures and increased draw distance, but it'll be the exact same map.

Something for you guys to talk about...

 

May lead into a series of interesting more things to find. Basically, we have a California plate Easter Egg, in the trash.

When GTA V is out on PC.

 

I think the StreetView map is one of the most amazing things that has been done with GTA IV. It's pretty much why I initially signed up on these forums. I wrote some basic tools to reproduce it, then got stuck with a rather trivial technical problem. But once there's an initiative to do StreetView for GTA V, I'd definitely join and put some time into it.

I added the link to the interactive map on the first post.

I added real life pics and Google Maps link to about half of them.

I'm going from top to bottom and am currently at "Unnamed 15".

when I'm done, I'll start taking ingame pics but some of you can start that already. There's much to be done !

I haven't had a chance to add anything to the interactive map, but I'll start putting some ingame pics in soon.

I'll use the ones I already have first, then probably start taking some new ones for other buildings etc.  I'll try to replicate the google street view images as much as possible.

Does it make things easier if the google image & the ingame image are uploaded as one single image, or is it better to do them separately?

I think it's better to have two different pictures. You'lL see, there is a space for the screenshot and another for the real life image.
I also added a few ingame pics from your snapmatic and Thingus' one. ;)

 

EDIT : I finished adding real life picture and real life adress for all buildings except the Malibu houses.

I'm not sure whether this has been identified before or not, but I'll post it here anyway.  

The real life inn comes complete with a Baja Bug & an electric golf cart.

 

Real life.  The Ski Inn on the corner of 2nd Street & Avenue A in Bombay Beach on the Salton Sea.

In game.  1. The Yellow Jack Inn.    2. The tavern next door to Trevor's trailer.
