Spotted a Google Maps Street Trekker in Vancouver on Thursday December 5, 2019. They are used to record street views for Google Maps in places where their cars can’t go. They’ve used it to document places such as Angkor Wat and the Grand Canyon. They also have a Streetview snowmobile which has documented Whistler Blackcomb Mountain and a Streetview Trolley for museums and similar spaces. And the best thing is they loan the Street Trekker out to organizations (government agencies, tourism boards, non-profits) for places they’d like to document. googletrekker streetview vancouver canada googlestreettrekker googlemaps
