Google’s new Grand Canyon Street view

Google is a biggest search engine which facilitates Google map. Till today you were supposed to see satellite map but now Google added Grand Canyon to the list of its Street View-supported locations. This new Google street view is quite interesting. This map covers more and more places. Google expands it street view for Hawaii, the Arctic, Zoos, Tsunami-ravaged buildings, and the ocean floor.


Recently Google has revealed imagery panoramic view of the Grand Canyon covering over 75 miles of trails and surrounding roads. It added over 9,500 panoramic images of the Grand Canyon to its Maps service. Ryan Falor, Google Maps product manager said, “Take a walk down the narrow trails and exposed paths of the Grand Canyon: hike down the famous Bright Angel Trail, gaze out at the mighty Colorado River, and explore scenic overlooks in full 360-degrees.

You’ll be happy you’re virtually hiking once you get to the steep inclines of the South Kaibab Trail. And rather than drive a couple hours to see the nearby Meteor Crater, a click of your mouse or tap of your finger will transport you to the rim of this otherworldly site.”


For this Grand Canyon street view Google used trekker backpacks which are powered by Android. Ryan Falor said pointing towards trekker that “Our team strapped on the Android-operated 40-pound backpacks carrying the 15-lens camera system and wound along the rocky terrain on foot, enduring temperature swings and a few muscle cramps along the way.” The lenses of this trekker capture 360 degree landscape which is incredible.
