Google Maps Capture The Beauty of the Galapagos


Google has collected panoramic imagery of the Galapagos islands and offers them through Google Street Views.

The company sent hikers to the Galapagos with Street View gear called "trekkers," 42-pound computer backpacks with large, soccer ball-like cameras mounted on a tower. Each orb has 15 cameras inside it that have captured panoramic views of some of the most inaccessible places on the Galapagos. Crews from The Catlin Seaview Survey worked with Google to capture 360-degree views of selected underwater areas too.

The Galapagos Islands are some of the most biologically unique ecosystems in the world.



"Our 10-day adventure in the Galapagos was full of hiking, boating and diving around the islands (in hot and humid conditions) to capture 360-degree images of the unique wildlife and geological features of the islands with the Trekker. We captured imagery from 10 locations that were hand-selected by CDF and GNPD. We walked past giant tortoises and blue-footed boobies, navigated through steep trails and lava fields, and picked our way down the crater of an active volcano called Sierra Negra," Raleigh Seamster, the project's leader for Google Maps said.

Google is processing the footage and is trying to stitch it together. It hopes to post it to Street View later this year.
