The Street View team has traveled on a train across the Alps and taken pictures of the mountain panoramas
It is unlikely that someone would complain on this trip: a team of Google employees recently has traveled across the Swiss Alps to photograph the Albula-Bernina line that is considered one of the most scenic rail routes in the world, and it is included in the UNESCO World Heritage List.
The route is known for its mountain sceneries that starts from a Swiss commune Thusis and goes through St. Moritz to the Italian border in Tirano. The panoramas have made with the support of Rhaetian Railway that will appear on the "Google Maps” soon.
Google team set trike - a tricycle on the platform in front of the train with a camera system at the top in order to create photographs. The cameras have taken the pictures in nine different directions, which are combining in 360-degree views now.
You can view some pictures from the trip until Google has been finishing the mountain panoramas.
