Indian government soon to give permission for 3D panoramic google street view
Indian tourist spots, hills, rivers, cites and roads can be explored 360 degrees, through google. Permission from the Indian government is expected to be given to the internet services’ giant to cover most of the Indian territory through the Google Street View.
Google has launched Street View in some of the tourist sites like Taj Mahal, Red Fort, Qutub Minar, Varanasi river bank, Nalanda University, Mysore Palace, Thanjavur temple, Chinnaswamy stadium besides others in partnership with the Archaeological Society of India.
The government plans to allow Google to cover such locations through the Google Street View with certain riders, except sensitive locations like defence installations, nuclear sites and some other high-valued spots.
Everything taken under it posted online. It has been extensively used in the United States, Canada and many European countries. However, its applications in India have been limited so far.
There has been opposition from Indian security establishment as the 2008 Mumbai terrorist attack is believed to have had photographic military observation of targets to ascertain key statistic features for the plot.
Google Street View is a technology featured in Google Maps and Google Earth that provides panoramic views from positions along many streets in the world. It was launched in 2007 in several cities in the United States, and has since expanded to include cities and rural areas worldwide. Streets with Street View imagery available are shown as blue lines on Google Maps.
Google Street View displays panoramas of stitched images. Most photography is done by car, but some is done by trekker, tricycle, walking, boat, snowmobile, camel, and underwater apparatus.
