Google Street View in Amazon Jungle

Google expands Street View with adding cangkupan located outside urban areas, such as the Amazon forest.

As quoted from Softpedia, Thursday (18/08/2011), Google Street View now adds to its location to other areas outside of urban areas like the Amazon rainforest and the Iraq National Museum.

Amazon forest that will be visible on Street View are the rivers, forests, and some uninhabited region in the area.

"The pictures were taken by members of the Street View and Google Earth Outreach we are located in the Amazon jungle," said Karin Tuxen-Bettman of the Google Earth Outreach team.

Google today began to take these locations, so users must wait before it will present the images in Street View.

To travel to the Amazon, Google works with the Foundation for a Sustainable Amazon (FAS). Non-profit organization that is asking Google to come and take pictures for Street View.

The first phase of this ongoing project, which will take pictures of the 50 km river area around the Rio Negro River. Once all the pictures already taken, will be shown in Street View.
