Google to add Dutch tourist hotspots to Street View

Monday 20 July 2009 | 12:42 CET | News
Google has begun adding tourist attractions to its Street View service. Google also started this week an opinion survey in cooperation with VVV, allowing Dutch people to themselves determine which attractions should be shown. The VVV has a list with 18 top locations from which the public can choose. The list includes the Binnenhof, the Efteling, Kinderdijk, the Het Loo palace and the Zaanse Schans. The Street View Trike, a specially developed mechaniclly driven transport vehicule, will soon take pictures of the attractions in 3D. Many Dutch cities such as Amsterdam are already on Street View.
