Image of the Week - Google Street View lands in Antarctica


The above picture is of Half Moon Island in the South Shetlands. You can see a 360 degree panoramic view of the island by pressing the arrows in the top-left hand corner of the picture. It has a certain 'cool' factor in more ways than one, don't you think?

The ubiquity of Google knows no bounds. Their Street View service, first introduced in 2007, with its 360-degree panoramic street-level images has now captured views of our planet's most southern-most continent - Antarctica.

Brian McClendon, vice president of engineering for Google Earth and Maps, took the Street View images or 'vacation photos' while travelling to Antarctica on a cruise ship. More information about his trip can be found here.
