Google has eighteen Dutch nature areas such as the Veluwe and the Weerribben, added to Street View.
Users on smartphones or on the web in 360 degrees to look around in the areas. Bird island Griend in the Wadden sea was in 2015 the first Dutch nature reserve that Google Street View was added.
Volunteers of the foundation Natuurmonumenten are now in eighteen other reserves with a Google 360-gradencamera on the path to walkways to photograph. The camera has fifteen lenses that every two seconds a picture. That are merged into a 360-gradenbeeld, which allows users to, as it were, by nature, can walk away without their leaving home.
General manager Marc van den Tweel of Natuurmonumenten aims, however, like that people in the areas still to visit. “Go especially to do, I would say. At the same time, we give people who do not have this opportunity, for example, because they have less mobility, but also the opportunity to be of our nature reserves to enjoy.”
