Submit your Google Trike Streetview ideas

The Google Maps team has a Google Trike Special Collections Poll and they want your ideas on where to send the Google Trike. The Google Trike is a three wheeler with the Google Maps Streetview Camera so they can collect images of pedestrian malls and trails that are not accessible by car. Google mechanical engineer Dan Ratner is a mountain biker. Like many good ideas, the idea of a Google Streetview trike came while Dan was mountain biking.

I’ve never seen the Google Trike but some people I know have seen it in action in the South Bay collecting local bike path info for inclusion in Google Maps. Interestingly, the Bay Trail in Shoreline Park immediately adjacent to the Googleplex in Mountain View, CA doesn’t have Streetview available (yet).

  8. Very well presented. Every quote was awesome and thanks for sharing the content. Keep sharing and keep motivating others.

  9. Bazı müşteriler, escortlarla belirli bir yerde buluşmak isteyebilirler. Bu durumda, buluşma yerinin Buca Escort, konumu da fiyatların belirlenmesinde rol oynar. Örneğin, Buca’nın merkezi bir bölgesinde buluşmak, daha yüksek bir ücrete neden olabilir.

  10. Adrasan, Antalya’nın eşsiz sahil şeridinde yer alan bir cennet köşesi. Turkuaz renkteki denizi, muhteşem plajları ve çam ormanlarıyla çevrili doğal güzellikleri ile ziyaretçilerini kendine çeken bir yer. Bu huzurlu ve sakin atmosferde tatil yapmak isteyenler için çeşitli konaklama seçenekleri sunan adrasandaki oteller, turistlerin doğayla iç içe unutulmaz bir deneyim yaşamasına olanak tanıyor.

  11. naturally like your web site however you need to take a look at the spelling on several of your posts. A number of them are rife with spelling problems and I find it very bothersome to tell the truth on the other hand I will surely come again again.
