Google Street View expands to all 7 continents – Penguin watch

Google Street View is one of Google’s most notorious innovations with many fans but also some critics due to privacy concerns. However the hugely-popular mapping service continues to grow and has now been expanded so that it covers all 7 continents of the world, including a place devoid of streets, Antarctica.

It seems incredible to think that the latest expansion, which also covers Brazil and Ireland, now covers the mountains, icebergs and penguin colonies of Antarctica but Google has indeed has its cameras out in one of the remotest corners of the globe. Google Street View now covers 25 nations of the world, according to The Telegraph.

Vice-president of engineering at Google Earth and Maps, Brian McClendon, said on the company’s blog, “We hope this new imagery will help people in Ireland, Brazil, and even the penguins of Antarctica to navigate nearby, as well as enable people around the world to learn more about these areas.”

For more on this go to telegraph.co.uk. Google Street View now has the 7 continents of the world covered, and Google Ocean covers the seas of the world, we can only wonder at what Google will come up with next?
