Google Takes Street View to the Polar Bear Capital of the World

In Google’s continuing effort to take over visually document the entire world, they’ve teamed up with Polar Bears International and taken Street View cameras to Churchill, Manitoba, more commonly referred to as the “Polar Bear capital of the world.”

Utilizing their Trekker Backpack attached to a customized vehicle, the Google/PBI duo managed to not only create a visual map of the tundra, but also get up close and personal with some of the worlds most incredible four-legged creatures.

If you’d like to take the tour yourself, head on over to Google Maps and get your jacket on. It should prove to be a fun and interesting adventure, especially for the little ones in your life.

On a related note, what unique location would you like to see the Google team go to next to document? They’ve already gone to the Grand Canyon, the world’s tallest mountains, the CERN Supercollider and the watery ‘streets’ of Venice. What do you think should be next?
