Last week one of our Team members had the chance to take part in a project to create a ‘streetview’ of the northerly part of the Pennine Way. The Northumberland National Park was chosen by Google for this innovative project alongside locations such as the Grand Canyon and Canadian Arctic!
The day involved carrying 18kg of top heavy, electronic wizardry which has 15 digital cameras, each taking a new image every 2.5 seconds. These images are “stitched” together so you see the image on your computer screen like Streetview.
It will give the viewer the next best thing to actually being there and hopefully promote more visits to the National Park. Having this facility will also be useful from a mountain rescue perspective.
An great day working alongside colleagues from the Northumberland National Park Authority.
