Wired Becomes the First Newsroom in the World to be Documented on Google Maps’ Street View
Ready or not, the latest feature addition to Street View from Google Maps is heading indoors. And what office would be more fitting for an inaugural indoor look-see than that of online tech magazine Wired who will be the first newsroom in the world to offer a virtual tour in Street View. In all fairness, Google has actually already been mapping for quite some time the interiors of volunteering government buildings, restaurants and museums — all public places where the service answers a legitimate need. Wired‘s role in the service is unique in that Google Maps is expanding to places of “aspirational travel,” where the public would not otherwise be invited — like the White House, or Antarctica, for example. Below is an embedded version of Google Maps while you can head over to Wired to check out the full story on the office’s visit by Google Maps’ photographer Timothy Wang.
