It's not just for obscure Japanese islands
anymore: reader NobleSavage writes with news that "If you're a tourism board, non-profit, university, research organization or other third party who can gain access and help collect imagery of hard to reach places, you can apply to borrow the Trekker and help map the world."
You can also help map the world (albeit without the very neat Trekker backpack cam
) without an application process via OpenStreetMap
. But if you had access to a panoramic camera like this, what places or spaces would you want to capture? I hope there will be street view imagery of Petra
, but I don't see any yet.
