The San Diego Zoo has become a pioneer location for Street View mapping of places inaccessible by car.

With its virtual doors opening to visitors this past Wednesday, the San Diego Zoo has become the first zoo to be accessible via Google Street View, and a pioneer location for Street View mapping of places inaccessible by car. The Google team used a specialized tricycle to map the visitor pathways and animal exhibits throughout the zoo. Google’s new Trike imaging system allows the Street View team to capture more than just city streets, while taking care to protect individual privacy by blurring close-up faces.
