From the archaeological areas of Pompeii to the Hiroshima Peace Memorial, Google's World Wonders Project aims to bring to life the wonders of the modern and ancient world. Together with partners including UNESCO, the World Monument Fund and Cyark, the World Wonders Project is preserving the world heritage sites for future generations.
Since it launched its Street View project back in 2007, Google has brought far-off places like the Amazon rainforest and Antarctica's Half Moon Island to laptop, tablet and smartphone screens across the world.
But now with Google's World Wonders Project, Google has captured close up views of these 132 historic sites by using their camera-equipped Street View trikes. And, with the help of partners like UNESCO, the World Monuments Fund and Getty Images, the company was able to beef up its Street View offerings for each historical site with further information, photos and sometimes even videos and 3D models.
