Over the past 12 years, Street View cars from Google have been traveling through many roads around the world. These cars feature a specialized camera on the roof, recording geographic information where they go. And last Friday, the search giant shared more about their efforts for this project over the past 10 years, as well as published the huge amount of geographic information they recorded.
The “unmistakable” cars of the Google Street View project
Specifically, the cars of the Street View project have recorded billions of photos, with a total length of distance of more than 16 million km. This huge distance is equivalent to about 400 times around the Earth. In addition, the satellite imagery for the Google Earth application covers 98% of the Earth’s surface area.
Despite such impressive results, a Google representative said there is still a lot of work to be done, and writing map data is a never-ending road.
Street View still hasn’t reached many parts of the world
The idea for the Street View project started 12 years ago, to support the recording of geographic data of the entire world. Since then, Street View combined with satellite images as well as aerial photos have become the basis for the process of building Google maps, which is also the reason for Google to be able to create Useful application in everyday life.
Of course, there are still many parts on Earth that have not been recorded by the Street View project, mainly places where cars cannot go. To solve this problem, Google also provides its tools to many hiking athletes, as well as boats or even sheep and camels, to reach ‘caves and alleys. ‘ Earth.
Besides, it is impossible not to mention the support of users in the Google Maps community, as they in 2019 have supported “numbering for more than 7 million houses in areas without too much data. geographic data, such as Armenia, Bermuda, Lebanon, Myanmar, Tonga, Zanzibar, and Zimbabwe, “ according to what Google shares on its blog site.
