Google Trekker was recently brought into Spain to start taking pictures in the Alhambra (Granada) . The trekker is a backpack (mochila) of about 15 kg which has a camera system of 15 lenses controlled by an Android device capturing 360 degree panoramic photos , a hard drive (disco duro) for local storage (almacenamiento) , and two batteries that provide enough power for a full day's walk .It’s specially used for reaching inaccessible places or those ones which are protected. As the operator walks, photos are taken every 2.5 seconds (approx.) The captured images are stored in the hard drive, processed by Google, and finally uploaded (subidas) to the Web.
Pictures will be published in coming months !
