Google Street View goes off road

Google’s Street View has been extremely popular to date, where the service has certainly gone some way in helping tourists as well as locals who are unfamiliar with a particular place to get around easily and without any hassle. Well, the Internet search giant intends to literally go off road with their set of images – including heading towards the hills, beautiful parks, castles and even hiking trails amidst historical landmarks. Late yesterday, Google announced that they intend to do just that simply by using a camera mounted onto a tricycle in order to access hard-to-reach places. This means a covert Trike team has been pedaling worldwide, and the fruits of their labor has paid off in terms of more unique places being added to Street View in Google Maps. Even historic locations like the Chateau de Chenonceaux in Civray-de-Touraine, France, was not spared in their efforts. Great stuff, don’t you think so?
