Sheep on the Faroe Islands replaced Google Street View
Five sheep equipped with 360-degree cameras strolled around the local hills, and the pictures and GPS coordinates were then transferred to Google Street View. In addition, activists removed a circular panorama, and now you can explore local landscapes online, as if sitting on the back of the sheep, reports The Guardian.
The SHEEP View 360 project is part of a campaign that is designed to convince Google to complete the survey. Project participants even launched Hesteg #WewantGoGlestreetView to google to pay attention to them.
"Faroe Islands is one of the most amazing places on Earth. Sad that share their beauty with friends from other countries is very hard. With the help of Google Street View, you can see all of Europe, even the top of the Mont Blanc Mountain, but not the Faroe Islands. Therefore, I decided to take everything into my hands and organized the project #wewantGooglestreetView, "said Durita campaign initiator gave Andreassen.
The Guardian contacted Google and tried to find out if she has plans for shooting Faroe Islands. The company did not say when they start to make their own panoramas of the islands, but noted that they could borrow equipment for filming.
Almost 50,000 people live on 18 Faroe Islands and 80,000 sheep.
