Want to Add to Google Maps Street View (for trails)?

Postby Mark Doiron » Mon Jul 01, 2013 10:14 am

Google Maps is looking to expand their trail coverage by loaning their gear out to qualifying organizations ...

If worthy, Google will lend you its 42lb, 15-camera backpack for an adventure

Sounds like a waste to me. Google Earth's coverage of trails looks like it was drawn by a blind man. Often you can see the trail in their photograph and their line for the trail is somewhere else. Same is true of back roads.
