So that’s how they do it! At this year’s Google I/O, Google showed off the “Trekker,” which is the above camera-backpack contraption that allows Googlers to get a Street View of things, even when there isn’t a street. The Grand Canyon is one of the areas that doesn’t technically have many roads inside for their vehicles to access. At this moment, a team of Google employees are trekking around the GC and capturing images that will soon be made available in Google’s Street View application.
I’ve always wanted to go, but now it looks like Google just saved me the trip. Grade A work, Google.
