Google goes to Galápagos
How do you enjoy a natural wonder like the Galápagos Islands without hurting their fragile natural balance? Well, now that Google has mapped out the islands in their first-person Street View format, it’s a lot easier. Naturally, Google selected some of the islands’ most spectacular sights for the Street View treatment, going as far as equipping scuba divers with their cameras to capture sea lions, turtles and reefs underwater. You can also take a tour through the Charles Darwin Research Station and peruse their collection of turtle shells and skeletons. Since launching in 2007 in the US, Street View has evolved to capture countries around the world, and special projects like the Grand Canyon, Japan’s abandoned Battleship Island, and now the Galápagos. Darwin would be proud. google.com/maps/views/streetview/galapagos-islands?gl=us.
