So far Google has been collecting street view images around the world, making it possible for consumers worldwide to visit places through a street view perspective. Although, these street views are sometimes seen as controversial due to privacy issues of people on the street images, however, this feature within Google maps is also very useful to “explore” streets and areas through a different perspective (SearchEngineLand).
Now, there are also street view images available for the tallest building in the world – the Burj Khalifa. So if you haven’t visited Dubai yet, this is an interesting and innovative way of exploring the world’s tallest building. The famous skyscraper in Dubai is 828 meters tall and currently the highest man made building in the world. Google stated that these street view images of the building were the first ones gathered in the Arab World and also the first time a skyscraper was captured in street view. This is quite an interesting move and we can be excited for more of these stunning buildings being captured in Google’s street view.
Capturing the Burj Khalifa
Capturing the images was a 3 Day process carried out by Google, taking 360 degree panoramic photos both inside the building and also from the outside. This ensured to get a stunning 360 view of the skyscraper. As SearchEngineLand reported, consumers have now the opportunity to view Dubai from the 124th floor of the building and also visit the world’s highest swimming pool in the world.
Have you seen this new addition to street view yet? If not, then check it out, its certainly inspirational!
