Google Employees Hike Through Wilderness For Street View

Street View has always been an innovative product, capturing just about every street in the world for viewing from the comfort of your own home. But there is still a vast amount of locations which aren’t available on the website, mainly because they are too tricky for the Street View cars to drive through.

That’s where the Street View Trekker comes in. Google employees, armed with a huge backpack containing a rotating Android powered camera, hike through the wilderness battling all kinds of weather conditions, to bring you accurate maps of places where no vehicle can go.
