Tour the World with the Street View Trekker
Google has released a new website exploring some of the amazing Street Views captured around the world with the Street View 'Trek' backpack.
Street View Trek includes some impressive multimedia tours, including Google Maps, Street View, photographs and videos of some of the world's most beautiful locations.
Street View Trek not only provides a great insight into how Google captures Street View imagery 'off-road' but includes interesting background into the locations visited by the Street View 'trekkers'. The locations covered on the site include the Great Barrier Reef, Mount Everest, the Amazon Basin, the Kennedy Space Center, the Burj Khalifa and Iqaluit in the Canadian Arctic.
Later this year you will be also be able to explore Street View on Google Maps of the Galapagos Islands and Venice.
