Google expands its Street View imagery to the top of Eiffel Tower
On Tuesday, Internet search giant Google expanded its spectacular Street View imagery to the top of the iconic French monument, the Eiffel Tower. The new addition - for which the Google Cultural Institute collaborated with the Eiffel Tower Operating Company - will essentially give armchair travelers an opportunity to explore 360-degree views from the top of the Eiffel Tower.
For capturing the newly-added 360-degree images of the Eiffel Tower's architecture and its views over Paris, the Google staff trekked the Street View Trolley which is a push-cart outfitted with a massive camera - to the top two floors of the 1,063-feet tower, which was designed by Gustave Eiffel, and opened in 1889.
With Google having added sights from the top of the Eiffel Tower to Street View as part of an online exhibition, the addition of the new imagery essentially brings three new exhibitions to the Internet, capturing the magic of the tower.
The exhibitions feature approximately 50 archival photographs, as well as plans, engravings, and images that tell the story of the construction of the Eiffel Tower and its impact in the 19th century.
About the addition of the new Eiffel Tower imagery to Street View, Mark Yoshitake - Google Cultural Institute's head of product and user experience - said a Tuesday blog post that the move to bring on the "spectacular vision" and the detailed architectural highlights of the tower "required tremendous knowledge of special planning and physics to ensure that 18,000 separately made pieces would come together as one."
