Anyone who wants to go on a road trip to the Grand Canyon can now easily do so with the help of Google Street View. Google Maps has released more than a dozen 3D galleries that feature breathtaking images of Arizona’s finest geological treasure and its key attractions including Bright Angel Trail, Colorado River and Meteor Crater.

Google invented Trekker-a special Android-operated camera that can be worn like a backpack to map the Grand Canyon on foot as the road is not smoothly paved. 

The Trekker has 15 lenses which takes a photograph every 2.5 seconds to piece together 360 degree panoramic views.

Google Street View has come up with many technological devices which include a street view cars, trolleys, trikes and snowmobiles.
