Have you ever wanted to explore the Grand Canyon? Well now you can do it from the comfort of your home as Google Maps introduces a panoramic walkthrough of the trails and scenic overlooks of the canyon. Breathtaking panoramic views of scenic locations have been one of Google Maps’ forte, previously shown by its underwater view of the Great Barrier reef and other scenic areas in Australia, the Philippines, and Hawaii. Captured using Google’s 15-lensed Trekker backpack camera system that captures images every 2.5 seconds, you can stroll through the Bright Angel Trail, or look out at the Colorado River.
