Google maps ancient Mexican ruins

Google is expanding its Street View offerings to include dozens of 360-degree photo tours of ancient Mexican monuments such as Teotihuacan, Chichen Itza and Palenque.

Google collected the all-around views by having riders pedal camera-equipped tricycles around the Mexican sites, with INAH's cooperation. INAH said the photo project started two years ago. Thirty sites have been added to Google Street View so far, with the aim of having more than 80 sites online by the end of the year. Eventually, all 189 of the archaeological sites under INAH's custody will be cataloged, the institute said.


Well here is a little jewel of a story.

It was only a matter of time. I personally can't wait for it. I love these locations and have often viewed them on Google Earth. Since many simply do not have the means or some the time, to travel this is the next best option. I'm glad technology in this case is being used for something other than destruction

I recently used google street view in my home search, worked great.

Now we can pick over the ancient ruins and examine them with out leaving the house.

Thanks to google one day no one will have to leave their house to see anything.

We are getting closer to having a whole wall of a home being a huge screen.
Imagine HD wall sized images traveling through some of the most amazing ancient sites

I already had that in my bachelor apt, had a hd digital projector that filled a wall 13 feet wide, it was awesome playing Halo on that sucker.

Only problem was at the time it was huge and heated the room by like 20 degrees, so I could only use it in the winter.
