Jesus Christ Poses for Street View
It has been possible for a while to get a few furtive glimpses from afar of the Christ the Redeemer statue in Google Maps Street View. Now you can get up close and personal with your savior thanks to new Street View imagery captured by the trekker.
Jesus is not the only holy figure to appear on Google Maps Street View. God himself has made a brief appearance above the Walensee in Switzerland.
The Street View of the Christ the Redeemer is part of a huge addition of new Street View imagery this week. Including Street View appearing for the first time in Colombia and lots of new imagery in New Zealand. In Japan Google Maps also has new Street View imagery from the Fukushima Exclusion Zone.
The new Street View imagery in Brasil features the island of Ilha Grande and the gorgeous beaches of Lopes Mendes.
