Google Maps Amazon Style

Most of us are comfortable with using Google maps and clicking on the little man to get a street view. Google has been expanding that for the whole world and last year even began an adventure to map the oceans.

Lately, it sent tricycles, like the one to the right to the Amazon to begin street maps there. Tricycles are used for stability and because there are no streets for automobiles. It also began hooking the same 360 degree cameras unto a boat to give us a water view of the Negro River. So, the next time you plan to vacation in the Amazon, you will be able to get a street view before you leave.
