Google Maps introducing ‘vertical’ Street View collection

June 28, 2015

You can start scaling the cliffs of El Capitan in Yosemite, California.

Google’s Street View has just introduced a new feature: a vertical collection that lets you scale the heights of tall mountains much like how climbers see it from their point of view – the first of which is El Capitan in Yosemite, California.

The project is a first for Google, which mapped the entire vertical view of the mountain – that’s about 3,000 feet. Be careful though, the images can be vertigo-inducing and supposedly not for the faint of heart.
