You Can Visit South Africa from the Comfort of your Home with Google

Google released a large collection of 360 degrees images of South African Parks.

You can view up to 170 trails in street view of the 19 National Parks in the 9 provinces of South Africa.

This project took 12 hours to complete with the help of 200 volunteers many were rangers and guides while the rest were hikers, lovers of nature and tech enthusiasts
The projects is a part of the Google Street View programme that encourages people to apply to borrow the 360 degree camera technology and help map the planet.

The trekker camera used for this project is a custom-made backpack that weighs 22kg and has 15 cameras that point in all directions. The on-board technology maps the camera’s exact location on the trail. While it records, the camera also takes a 360 degree photo every two seconds.
