A Hundred Monuments in India on Google Street View

A Hundred Monuments in India on Google Street View

Monuments such as Taj Mahal or the Gandhi Memorial will appear pn Google's service thanks to an agreement with the Ministry of Culture and the Department of Archaeology of India.

Google's project, which has already been started up, will allow people all over the world with Internet connection to visit Indian monuments in 360 degree panoramic views. But searchers will not show the streets of the country, but only an example of the most touristic points such as Taj Mahal, the Gandhi Memorial or Qutub Minar, a 73-metre minaret in Delhi.

The Director General of the Department of Archaeology of India, Pravin Srivastava, considers that the project will contribute for Indian monuments to seem more accessible and easier to know for the world population. Furthermore, Srivastava believes that the fact that they appear on Google's service will help to maintain them for future generations.

Google Street View's methodology to add Indian monuments to its platform will be the same it normally uses, but this time it won't do it with its famous cars, but those in charge of taking photographs will walk to the chosen venues taking photographs with their Google’s Trecker, a rucksack with a camera that has already been used on other occasions, such as in Galapagos or Mount Fuji.
