The Map Makers

Rincon Georgia

On my way to the office this week I noticed a slow-moving vehicle with a contraption on the hood.  Being in a high traffic area I safely weaved around cars and caught up with the slow moving vehicle.  I tried my best to get closer when we sat at the red light, all the while being mindful of the big fine I could get in the state of Georgia for holding onto my phone to snap a photo.

Until now I thought the Google street view maps were somehow taken from the sky.

A few things I found out while researching this car is:

  • there is no set schedule for areas to be updated
  • You can apply to be a driver at most employment agencies
  • The globe on top of the car is the camera

 

And this friends is how most of us are figuring out which way to drive to our destinations.
