The Southeast Tennessee Tourism Association is excited about collecting imagery of special places in Southeast Tennessee, North Georgia, & Southwest North Carolina in partnership with Google Maps. We are borrowing the Trekker camera, hiking around these unique and amazing locations, and will share these images for processing and future inclusion as panoramic images that everyone can see and enjoy on Street View in Google Maps. What this technology and opportunity provides is an enhanced way for visitors to connect with these special places in a way they may never have before. In fact, we expect many people may never get to explore these places in person, so we are so happy to open it up for the world to enjoy. We’ll be at this for a while, but stay tuned for announcements from Google and the Southeast Tennessee Tourism Association. The first batch of Street View imagery is live on Google Maps as of August 2017.
