Google Street View Imagery Now Available on Guam



Tokyo, Japan- In partnership with the Guam Visitors Bureau (GVB), Google launched its first Street View imagery of Guam today.  The new Street View images feature panoramic views from public roads on the island, giving people a virtual road trip through street-level imagery. Google today is also unveiling new 23 beautiful locations including beaches, parks, and tourist spots such as Two Lovers Point and the Cetti Bay Overlook. With this new Street View imagery, Guam’s beautiful landscape and tourist attractions can now be enjoyed virtually through Google Maps from anywhere in the world. 

In addition, Google is releasing new Indoor View imagery for eight shopping centers and 19 hotels on Guam, bringing people a new way to explore some of the island’s most popular indoor destinations.  


“Guam is the crown jewel of the Pacific. We have the most amazing sunsets and our people embody the Håfa Adai Spirit. We have been blessed with a rare opportunity to showcase our island home with a little help of technology thanks to Google. Now everyone around the globe will know of the treasures that our island paradise has to offer,” said Governor Eddie Baza Calvo. 
  
To commemorate the launch, the Google Street View Trekker will be on display at GVB’s booth at JATA on Saturday, September 27.  The Street View Trekker is a backpack equipped with a Street View camera system used to gather imagery in locations only accessible by foot and was used to collect off-road imagery on Guam. Visitors can experience wearing this system and take photos with their own cameras or other mobile devices.  
  
“We are excited to have partnered with Google to capture our island paradise in a way that hasn’t been done before,” said GVB General Manager Karl Pangelinan. “With the launch of Google Street View on Guam, both our local residents and visitors have a new unique resource to explore Guam’s natural beauty and experience why we are the resort destination of choice.” 
  
About Google Street View 
Street View is a popular feature of Google Maps, already available in 59 countries, that allows people to virtually explore and navigate a neighborhood through panoramic street-level images. In countries where Street View is available, users can access street-level imagery by zooming into the location on Google Maps, or by dragging the orange "Pegman" icon from the bottom right-hand corner of the map onto a blue highlighted street.
