Google Street View Team Treks The Grand Canyon For Mapping
Because the Grand Canyon isn’t accessible via car--or trike, or snowmobile for that matter--Googlers are mapping the American wonder with Trekkers, which are backpacks with 360-degree cameras mounted on top and controlled by Android phones.
Tough day at the office for the Google Maps team
So far, the team has mapped portions of the Grand Canyon National Park including the Bright Angel Trail, South Kaibab Trail, and other chunks of the South Rim. Google says that these images will soon be live on Google Maps for all to enjoy.
