Jane Goodall Street View
Google has added Street View imagery to Google Maps from the Gombe Stream National Park in Tanzania. The park is where the famous anthropologist Jane Goodall has for 45 years been studying the social and family interactions of wild chimpanzees.
Now you can also explore the shores of Lake Tanganyika and the rain forests of the Gombe Stream National Park using Google's interactive panoramic imagery.
Google has also added new Street View imagery in Japan. Google used a boat to capture Street View imagery along hundreds of kilometers of the Tohoku coast. The coast in this region of Japan was devastated by the March 2011 tsunami. The new imagery covers 400 km of the coast in the Iwate and Miyagi prefectures.
