Google Trekker

July 7th, 2013 · No Comments · Google

On June 27, 2013, Google announced its first Trekker Partnership with the Hawaii Visitor and Convention Bureau. The 40 lbs. back pack contains 15 cameras shooting 17MBs per frame. Rob Pacheco from Big Island’s Hawaii Forest and Trails is the first HVCB vendor to record the trails on Hawaii Island.

Once completed, the files will be post-processed by Google and made available in the 4th quarter 2013. The Google Trekker will then get deployed on Maui, Kauai and finally to Oahu. Keep up with the latest developments on the Trekker here.
