Albuquerque – Climb Mount Fuji, explore the Egyptian pyramids at Giza, tour the Canadian Arctic -- and now discover Albuquerque's most breathtaking Open Space lands.
The Google Street View Trekker is a wearable backpack with the newest street view camera platform installed on top. This allows the operator to access remote areas on foot, automatically gathering images as it goes. The imagery is then stitched together to create the 360-degree panoramas in Google Maps.

Albuquerque's Open Space
"Albuquerque Open Space lands are world-class," said Albuquerque Mayor Richard J. Berry. "This is an innovative way to invite the world to enjoy our Open Space Areas that we have always been proud of."
The Google Street View Trekker will allow travelers to plan their visits to Open Space ahead of time and provide the opportunity for "virtual hikes" for people with disabilities or other circumstances that may prevent them from experiencing these areas in person.
"Albuquerque is a grand and unique city. By making this imagery available for people around the world to see, we hope to highlight Albuquerque's vast and natural beauty," said Deanna Yick, Google Maps Street View Program Manager. "We were thrilled to work with the Open Space division, and help create a virtual experience for an area they are striving to preserve."
