Google Street View imagery provides users with a rich, immersive browsing experience and allows users to explore world landmarks, view natural wonders, navigate a trip or other points of interest. Street View was first launched in May 2007 and is already available in more than 3000 cities across 63 countries around the world.

Antony McLoughlin, Street View Programme Manager, for Google in Europe, Middle East and North Africa, said, "We have been expanding Street View across the UAE and hope to do add additional imagery in the future.

We've just added a whole bunch of new content to Dubai360.com to celebrate the 1st anniversary of the site going live.

Highlight is an amazing 45 gigapixel panorama shot from the pinnacle of the Burj Khalifa.

But that's not all - from this panorama, you can link to many other gigapixel images we've shot around the city, including many brand new gigapixels shot from drones. Yup. DRONE GIGAPIXELS.

From those, hundreds of new "hotspots" are then available to take you pretty much wherever you want.

We now have over 2900 separate pieces of panoramic content on the site - over 1600 new pieces of content added since we launched.

The site is so comprehensive that the special effects guys for the new Star Trek film used it to scout the city and decide on which locations to shoot before coming over here!

Explore and enjoy!

Challenge - can you find the giraffes?!

Kind regards,


Gerald.
