Google Street View

Google Street View - For the first time and to celebrate its fifteenth anniversary, Google Street View, its virtual navigation tool, has unveiled the ranking of the ten favourite locations of Internet users in France. In first place and not surprisingly, is the Eiffel Tower followed by the Louvre Museum, the Arc de Triomphe, Disneyland Paris, the Parc des Princes, the Sacré-Coeur, the Cathedral of Notre-Dame de Paris, the Château de Versailles and finally the Pantheon. Since the creation of the service, Google Street View cameras have recorded a total of 220 billion images around the world, for 16 million kilometers travelled. The cameras are regularly on board cars, but can also be fitted to pedestrians, or even more unusual operators such as camels.
