  • Case out the layout of the building.
  • Spot security cameras, gates and obstructions.
  • Seek good hiding places like bushes and trees.
  • Locate utility boxes.
  • Actually look inside your garage if you happened to have it open when Google’s Street View Capture Camera Van drove by and took the photo
