Google’s Street View goes into the Amazon

Google’s next Street View project will capture 360-degree images of the Amazon to share the area’s environment and culture with the world. Armchair travellers will soon be able to explore the ecological treasures of the Amazon. Street View in the Amazon will give an insight into remote villages and their inhabitants, tucked along river fronts and hidden far-off the beaten track. Google’s surveyors will travel along rivers, with 360-degree cameras, to collect panoramic images of the lush ecosystem and local communities, which few will get to experience for themselves. Local people have also been asked to help with the project, by pedalling a camera equipped tricycle around their communities to give further insight into their little-known lifestyles. This isn’t the first time Google Street View has ventured into hard-to-reach places to raise awareness of the planet’s most important ecosystems.
