You can now become a Google Street View Trekker

Google maps, Google Earth and all their related apps use Street View. Street View is ability to browse Google Maps at street view level. If you're using Google Earth - drop the little man icon and you're suddenly on eye level with the map. So surf and see pictures as they were taken live and kind of live the experience. latest Google Street View has moved to a whole new level. Instead of the street view cars - Google has packed a Trekker on a human back and gone walking with the camera equipment. Which means street view can be a accessed from difficult places and difficult terrain. All a person needs to do is to strap the equipment to their back and walk and out of the whole effort comes some amazing panoramic 360 degree views of the beautiful earth, using Google Street View Trekker.
