Google Trekker Takes Tourists To Inaccessible, Remote Destinations
The tech company is helping people to virtually explore never-before seen geographic areas.
Google recently launched its pilot program which gives third-party organizations a chance to use the Street View Trekker, a backpack with camera equipment that can take 360-degree photos, and contribute images to Google Maps.
A post on the tech company’s blog showed what their pilot program can potentially provide for internet users, and that is to provide a virtual tour of places that most people can’t get to.
In their post, the Street View Trekker team presented a virtual tour of the Japanese island of Hashima, an abandoned island where scenes from the last James Bond film were shot.
