You Can Apply To Use Google’s Street View Backpack Now


Called Trekker, the backpack is used to image the more obscure locations around the planet that cars, trikes and snowmobiles can’t access. Now, if you’re a “tourism board, non-profit, university, research organisation or other third party” who has access to a hard-to-reach place, Google are willing to give you the chance to use it yourself.

In fact, you can apply online here to use Trekker. And you should. [Google]
