Google Street View Comes to Deer Valley State Park
Midway – As part of its effort to create a comprehensive, accurate and useful map of the world, Google’s Street View Trekker team captured 360-degree imagery of Utah’s DEER CREEK STATE PARK.
“Utah’s connection to outdoor recreation is critical to our unparalleled quality of life and a robust economy,” says Lt. Gov. Greg Bell. “We want Utah’s outdoors to be accessible to residents and visitors, and this program will provide access like we could have never imagined. Soon, people across the world will be able to go online and see—in 360-degree panoramic vision—the beauty that we have right in our backyard.”
Street View Trekker is Google’s latest innovation in mapping technology. It combines a backpack and a Street View camera so the millions of people who use Google Maps around the world can experience local treasures like Deer Creek State Park.
The Street View Trekker weighs approximately 40 pounds and stands about 4 feet tall. When worn, a camera system—with 15 lenses pointed in all directions—extends 2 feet above the operator’s shoulders and takes photos every 2.5 seconds. The Trekker allows Google to map locations that are inaccessible to vehicles, like parkland and trails through narrow or challenging terrain.
