360 degree views of New Zealand’s Great Walks are now available on Google Maps, including popular tracks such as the Abel Tasman and Routeburn.
The imagery was captured by the Google Street View Trekker, a backpack with more than 300 cameras which take photos every few seconds.
Ross Young, spokesman for Google New Zealand, said the addition of the Great Walks to Google Maps is likely to do wonders for tourism.
“Immersive technology experiences like these give international tourists the chance to see first-hand how stunning our country is before they travel,” says Ross.
“This is a great example of business and government working together to use technology and the internet to tell New Zealand’s story to the world.”News | Tagged Adventure Tourism, Air New Zealand, Google Maps, New Zealand Great Walks, Qantas, Royal Visit, Rugby World Cup, Tourism |
