London: Google Street View is giving a 360-degree view of the River Thames for the first time.
It marks the first time a river in Europe has been included on Street View.
The search giant is teaming up with the Port of London Authority (PLA) to capture the imagery by hitching a ride on the Yantlet - the trust`s hydrographic surveying vessel, the Independent reports.
According to the report, normally used to collect data on all sorts of river-related info, the Yantlet traversed the river from Woolwich to Richmond with Google`s Trekker camera on board.
The Trekker is the most portable of Google`s Street View cameras, usually attached to a 18kg (40lbs) backpack.
