Google Takes Street View Technology to Heritage Sites with World Wonders Project

You know Google Maps and the spiffy 360-degree navigation of Street View, but what if you want to get a closer look at Antarctica or dive into Australia’s Shark Bay? For that, you’ll want to consult the search giant’s new World Wonders Project, a cultural digitization platform created in collaboration with organizations such as UNESCO, the World Monuments Fund, and CyArk. The World Wonders website features an index of 130 places (and counting), ranging from Stonehenge and Rome’s Temple of Hercules to the Hiroshima Peace Memorial and Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. In addition to panoramic views of the cultural sites, there are photographs, 3-D models, and videos.
