Since launching in 2007, Google Maps Street View has become a useful tool for millions of users looking to locate destinations from the comfort of their own device.
However, the tool isn’t used purely for geographical purposes, and has unleashed a world of mystery and oddities ranging from the weird to the wonderful and downright embarrassing.
Through Google Maps, one user discovered a street view image of a woman in the middle of a street in Madrid, which shocked and amused Reddit users.
The image shows the unidentified woman in the middle of a trash-strewn street.
Rubbish can be seen littered along the pavement with a field of grass and rundown buildings surrounding her.
Next to a destroyed patch of pavement, one woman can be seen squatting in the street while staring intensely at her phone.

Dressed in rather risqué attire which included fishnet tights, black briefs and a pair of peep-toe beige wedges, the mystery woman is hard to miss in the middle of the isolated street as the sun shines brightly.
While we don’t know the story behind the image, one can imagine that she was out the evening before or is perhaps a lady of the night.
With her black bag situated on the pavement next to her, the racy image amused Reddit users and left them wondering what was going on.
“Definitely wearing that outfit to work tomorrow,” said one user.

Another wrote: “That is quite the ensemble – the somewhat modest cardigan goes perfectly with the knock-off Calvin Klein knickers and fishnet tights.”
A third said: “It’s so much easier to get into a squatting position when wearing heels. She’s probably been in that position for at least 30 minutes.”
This isn’t the first time Google Maps has captured someone in a rather strange predicament.
One internet user discovered a street view image of a woman caught in a particularly awkward position.

The image in question shows a leafy green countryside in Lazio, Italy. It appears to be a relatively quiet road, with no-one else in sight – just clear blue skies and lots of greenery.
There are two cars – one parked on the right-hand side of the road and another driving off into the distance.
Amid the peace and tranquility, stands one woman in an all-black ensemble as she appears next to a bush on the deserted road.
On closer examination, it appears as though the woman is reaching around the back of her mini black dress to pull out a wedgie.
The woman’s face cannot be seen on camera, so luckily her identity has been hidden.
It’s likely she thought the embarrassing act wouldn’t be captured for the world to see.
However, the photo has been blasted across Reddit, with users sharing their thoughts on her etiquette faux pas.
One person commented: “Looks like she just came back from a night out and needed to head to the ‘ladies’ before continuing her journey home.”
Another said: “I don’t blame her. If I was in an area like that which looks pretty isolated, I’d be going to town too!”
