Google’s quest to map and photograph the entire world has been stopped in its tracks by a country not usually associated with confrontation.

Switzerland’s privacy watchdog is preparing to battle the internet giant over its Street View service, which shows panoramic street-level pictures of 100 cities globally, with people, cars and businesses clearly visible in many shots.

According to The Daily Mail the Swiss data protection commissioner, Hanspeter Thuer, has demanded that Google ensures all faces and car plates are blurred to protect people’s privacy, and that enclosed areas such as walled gardens and private roads are removed from the images.

He also wants the California firm to declare at least one week in advance which Swiss towns and cities it plans to send its teams to, so residents are informed before they are unwittingly photographed and their pictures posted online.
