Trekker is Google’s new mapping device for documenting some of the greatest places on Earth. It produces photographs and interactive maps of anyplace on the planet automobiles cannot access, such as nature trails, world wonders, museums, and dense city centers. The all-in-one backpack includes a 360-degree camera array that creates perfect images of its surroundings, two positioning LIDARS for mapping terrain, a computer with heat-sink cooling, and two hot-swap batteries. Through volunteers and individuals who are paid, Trekker is documenting every corner of the Earth so we can all learn more about this incredible planet of ours.
