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

If you’ve always fancied mapping out an obscure part of the globe, it could be your lucky day: you can now apply to use Google’s Street View backpack.

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]
