DOINews: USFWS: Remote Hawaiian Islands Added to Google Street View

Last edited 09/05/2019

Staff from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and NOAA have worked with Google to bring 360-degree panoramic images from five locations within Papahanaumokuakea Marine National Monument to Google Maps. Internet users can now virtually visit Tern Island and East Island at French Frigate Shoals, Laysan Island, Lisianski Island, and Pearl and Hermes Atoll. Covering 20 miles on foot using the Google Street View Trekker, staff spent a week capturing thousands of panoramas of the incredible features. In 2012, Google Street View went live with imagery of Midway Atoll National Wildlife Refuge.
