Google Street View Trekker Goes To ‘Dead City’
[ Search]

Google is releasing some new Street View imagery from the abandoned Hashima Island, which is known by “Dead Island” or “Dead City” from the James Bond flick Skyfall.

Google announced the imagery in a Japanese blog post, and shared this video:

This is just the latest imagery from the Trekker. Earlier this year, Google released some Grand Canyon imagery taken with the device, and in May, announced a new Galapagos Island project utilizing it. Then earlier this week, Google showed off what it’s doing with the Burj Khalifa in Dubai.

Google has also announced a new pilot program in which it will be letting third-party organizations borrow the Trekker to contribute their own imagery to Street View. More on that here.

Update: Google has now discussed the project in a U.S. blog post, referring to the location as “Battleship Island”.
