[BBC] Google Streetview Expands to the Amazon

Google is expanding its Street View service into some of the world's most remote places.

It will photograph the Amazon and Rio Negro Rivers of northwest Brazil in partnership with charity Foundation for a Sustainable Amazon (FAS).
Slightly old, but I don't think it's been posted.

I love the bit at the end

Quote:
Resident Maria do Socorro da Silva Mendonca had never heard of Google, but is excited by the project.

"I don't know anything about the Internet," the 40-year-old mother told AP.

"I think it is wonderful because our community was never published anywhere, not even [big Brazilian city] Manaus.

"Nobody knows we are here."

I saw this on the morning news this morning, I thought it was very cool to let people see the Amazon in detail from their homes.

I also saw that they talked some tribal people into wearing cams on themselves so that people could see their daily activities and so forth.

This is very cool !!!
