Google Maps Adds Liwa Oasis and Desert to Street View by Using Camels to Capture Photos

Google Maps just added the Liwa Oasis and Desert to Street View after using camels mounted with Street View Trekkers to capture the imagery. Camels were used in an attempt to disrupt the environment, rather than using something like a dune buggy. Could you imagine sitting atop a camel and looking across the vast desert dunes?  It’s very beautiful and is simply awesome. Now you can trek across the Liwa Desert! Whoo hoo!
