Google Creates Street View For Hiking Trails
Google Trekker lets you visually explore previously unmapped areas from your computer, and then take to the hills.
Google’s quest to create the perfect map has reached a new milestone. Using a backpack-mounted multilens camera setup, Google employees can now record places and routes only reachable by foot (or ski). The Android-powered device weighs 40 pounds and holds 15 cameras, a hard drive, and enough battery power for a full day of exploration.
