The guided tours, that Google calls “Voyager,” aren’t just a few hacked along algorithmic mess, they’re led by scientists and documentarians. Gombe Park, a range of North America’s National Parks, or a tour of Frank Gehry’s buildings. Google conjointly groups up with BBC and Planet Earth, thus you'll zoom on totally different locations from the show and learn additional.
If you’re really bored, you'll conjointly use the “I’m feeling lucky” button to get sent some random place within the world. Once you’re there, Google packs in helpful data by propulsion in sources like Wikipedia so you'll learn a little concerning places that you land. The 3D button permits you to look at anywhere you would like from any angle, in most cases that tends to seem as weird and awkward as you probably imagining it would be.
