How Does Street View Work?

Answer

The Street View imagery is recorded at street level by cars using special video recording devices mounted on a tripod on top of the car. They simultaneously record images in several different directions. Areas that are not accessible by car, like pedestrian areas, narrow streets, alleys and ski resorts, are sometimes covered by Google Trikes (tricycles) or snowmobiles. This technology provides panoramic views from various positions along many streets in the world.
