Google has captured the Zandvoort race track in 360 degrees for the first time in twelve years. The images will soon be available on Google Street View, which celebrates its 15th anniversary this week. Due to the anniversary, Google is coming with new features and has announced a new camera for Street View. The tour of the Google car in Zandvoort coincides with the 15th anniversary of Street View.
Google Street View is a mobile mapping service from Google Inc. that allows the Internet user to view 360° panoramic photos of streets at street level. The service is an addition to Google Maps and Google Earth and was launched on May 25, 2007. Google has something to celebrate, namely the 15th anniversary of Street View.
All the while you can already look in the world around you and orient yourself and Street View has been active in the Netherlands since 2009, Google says in a press release. Meanwhile, we are 220 billion images worldwide and Google has found many creative ways to capture the world in images: from camel cameras in the Sahara to snowmobile cameras in the Arctic.
