Google Street View is the 10th anniversary, when looking at the tremendous progress in photographs
Larry Page, one of Google's founder, started prototyping in 2004, and since 2006 it has been running a van equipped with cameras and lasers in the streets of America to shoot a 360 degree photo, for the first time "Google Street View "The service was released to the public in general as of May 29, 2007. And on May 29, 2017 local time, finally Google Street View celebrated its 10 th anniversary, and with beautiful photos taken by Google street view car etc., taking people to "fictional travel" Google looks back on the past trajectory.
Cheers to Street View's 10th birthday!
I figured the way Google Street View has been so far. Street view cars began to run in five cities in 2007 and in 2008 started "Street View Trike" with a camera on a tricycle. In 2011, we shot not only the road, but also inside the museum.
You can check the street view car and trekker from the following article.

On the other hand, we launched the Google Street View Trekker, a place where people can not run a car, with people carrying a camera walking and taking pictures. In 2013, the volunteer staff took a street-view camera back and announced the "Trekker Loan Program" to have them take a picture of the "best place" they know.

Initially it is Street View, which was filming only the urban roads, but we will start shooting deeper places more rapidly with the above techniques and human power. This made it possible to experience like traveling around the world just by having a PC.
