Google has used cars, tricycles, and people to photograph the world around us. Now the tech giant is adding a new form of transportation to its Street View program: camels.
A 10-year-old camel named Raffia has been enlisted to help Google capture one of the more remote places on the planet, the Liwa Desert in United Arab Emirates.
Using a Google Trekker camera, Raffia and her guide walked the 100-kilometre stretch of desert, southwest of Abu Dhabi.
Despite Google Street View's ubiquitousness in North America and Europe, the majority of roadways on Earth that have not yet been photographed.
