Google’s Street View camera on Camel in UAE

  • Published by Ozgur Tore

Google uses its Street View Camera on a camel’s hump to capture Liwa Desert at the south west of the city of Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates (UAE).

Since 2012, Google has been letting users explore landmarks like the Grand Canyon or the Taj Mahal that are only accessible by foot via the Trekker, a backpack with a green soccer-ball-like camera at the top that captures panoramic images we’re used to seeing on Street View.

The Trekkers are usually loaned out and attached to humans. But a 10-year-old camel named Raffia just won the honor of being the first four-legged creature to add to Street View’s contributor roster.

Raffia and a guide walked through the Liwa Desert, a 100-kilometer-wide stretch of desert to the south west of the city of Abu Dhabi.
