Google Is Recruiting for Projects To Take Street View off the Grid
Release Date: Jul 16, 2013
Google is kicking off a pilot program that enables third-party organizations to borrow the Street View Trekker and contribute imagery to Google Maps. For the first time ever, this program will enable organizations to use Google’s camera equipment to collect 360-degree photos of the places they know best; helping make Google Maps more comprehensive and useful. This program is part of an ongoing effort to make it possible for anyone to contribute to Google Maps.
If you’re a tourism organization, nonprofit, government agency, university, research organization or other entity interested in borrowing a Street View Trekker to capture and share imagery from a place you know and care about, apply at http://goo.gl/swkt2.
