How does Google’s Street View get to remote places?

James explains on Sky News

How does Google’s Street View get to remote places?

On 23rd July, Dr James Cheshire (UCL Geography, Deputy Director of the Consumer Data Research Centre) was invited to appear on the Sky News flagship evening programme, Sky News Tonight.

His expertise was required to discuss the novel methods deployed by Google, including horse-drawn sledges, barges and local trekkers, to bring Street View to ever more far-flung parts of the world, now including Mongolia.

James was also asked to explain the continuing value and utility of so-called “traditional” printed maps in an era of digital mapping.
