Google announced today that it is adding “behind-the-scenes” content like photography, video, audio tours, etc. to its Street View Collections site on the recently launched Views. The content can be accessed from a “Go Behind the Views” icon.
“Our first two multimedia adventures enable you to experience the Canadian Arctic in Iqaluit, Canada, and the world’s tallest building, the Burj Khalifa in Dubai, UAE,” says Street View program manager Deanna Yick in a blog post. “We also invite you enjoy photos and videos from our past journeys to the Grand Canyon, the base camp of Mount Everest, the Amazon Basin, the Great Barrier Reef and the NASA Kennedy Space Center — minus the extreme temperatures and long plane rides! If you’re on the Views page for those specific collections, just click on the “About this place” button on the upper right hand corner.”
“As we trek around collecting more imagery of interesting places across the globe, we’ll continue to add more content to these sections of the Views site,” she adds. “So come back often to check them out, get behind-the-scenes insight into how Street View imagery is collected, and learn fun facts and details about these select locations.”
