Word has it that Google is riding its camera-equipped trike through parks and other non-street places to expand its Street View function that allows users to see an actual on-the-ground photo of such places within maps.
According to Matt Williams, Google’s Streets View Operations Manager, “Most recently we’ve added a new vehicle to our fleet that we call the ‘Trike.’ We basically took the same technology in our Street View cars and towed them behind a 3-wheeled tricycle in a device reminiscent of an ice cream cart. The Trike lets us reach areas not accessible by car, such as hiking trails, biking trails and college campuses, just to name a few.
No word on when these pictures will come on-line. We did some short searching and could not find anything yet.
