In its quest to map the entire planet, Google has started in on the world’s largest tropical rainforest.
Google started its Street View in Brazil last year. But until recently, it’s just been focused on the country’s bustling cities and towns.
Now, it plans to send its street-view cameras on tricycles down dirt trails, and even mount them on boats to capture on-the-ground pictures.
Google also will rely on the aid of local people to add details that only they would know, such as well-traveled paths or far-flung villages. The tech giant plans to work with Amazonas Sustainable Foundation, a non-profit organization backed by the Brazilian government that works to conserve the forest and improve the livelihood of communities who live there.
