VIDEO: Exploring the Galapagos Islands with Google Maps

Google Maps has released a video on their trip “to collect 360-degree Street View imagery” of the Galapagos Islands.

The blog Lat Long explains:

The extensive Street View imagery of the Galapagos Islands will not only allow armchair travellers to experiences the islands from their desktop computer, but it will also play an instrumental role in the ongoing research of the environment, conservation, animal migration patterns, and the impact of tourism on the islands.

The project is part of a partnership with the Galapagos National Park, The Charles Darwin Foundation and Catlin Seaview Survey.
