Now, take a trip down River Thames courtesy Google Street View

London, Oct. 29 : Google Street View is giving a 360-degree view of the River Thames for the first time.


It marks the first time a river in Europe has been included on Street View.

The search giant is teaming up with the Port of London Authority (PLA) to capture the imagery by hitching a ride on the Yantlet - the trust's hydrographic surveying vessel, the Independent reports.

According to the report, normally used to collect data on all sorts of river-related info, the Yantlet traversed the river from Woolwich to Richmond with Google's Trekker camera on board.

The Trekker is the most portable of Google's Street View cameras, usually attached to a 18kg (40lbs) backpack.
