Street View Trekker The Trekker enables Street View to feature more places around the world — places no car, trike, trolley or snowmobile can access. This wearable backpack is outfitted with a camera system on top, and its portability enables us to gather images while maneuvering through tight, narrow spaces or locations only accessible by foot.
Learn how to be the next Trekker Street View Trolley When a group of art-loving Googlers wanted to take Street View technology to museums around the world, we needed to develop a system that could easily fit through museum doorways and navigate around sculptures. This first foray indoors fit all the necessary equipment onto a smaller frame: It has not only collected views from inside museums, but also other indoor locations like the White House and sports stadiums.
Over a few weekends using some 2x4s, duct tape, and extra hard drives wrapped in ski jackets to endure the freezing conditions, the team was able to successfully mount the Street View equipment on a snowmobile. Skiers, snowboarders and snowshoers can now explore Whistler Blackcomb Mountain and the hilly, snow-capped terrain shared by surrounding resorts.
In order to reach some of the narrow alleyways in Europe, like those in Barcelona and Paris, a team of engineers built a tricycle-based camera system. This three-wheel pedi-cab with a camera system on top automatically gathers imagery as the operator pedals along.
To share Street View imagery, our engineering team is hard at work behind the scenes. Collecting Imagery First off we need to actually drive around and photograph the locations to show in Street View. We pay close attention to many factors, including the weather and the population density of various areas, to determine when and where we can collect the best possible imagery.
Aligning Imagery To match each image to its geographic location on the map, we combine signals from sensors on the car that measure GPS, speed and direction. When you move to an area in the distance, the 3D model determines the best panorama to show you for that location.The curious case of Google Street View's missing streets Many towns and cities are littered with small gaps in the Street View imagery.

systematic manner, some observers fear that NCBI’s current platform is inade- quate and far greater computing resources and infrastructure will be required (IOM 15).
Last May Germany launched a criminal investigation into Google’s Street View cars, and found they had been scanning unsecured Wi-Fi networks and collecting private user data–small bits personal information, accessed websites, and email messages.
Top Pros and cons of Google Street View Maps. According to the BBC there are already calls to shut down Street View, so here’s a light-hearted look at the top 10 pros and cons of Google’s latest UK adventure: Pros.
