6. Google Street View, 2007

Google Street View, which launched in 2007, is a feature in Google Maps and Google Earth that shows panoramic views along both city and rural streets worldwide.

The images are taken by a fleet of specially adapted cars and stitched together to form one complete image. Areas not accessible by car, such as ski slopes, are sometimes covered by Google tricycles or snowmobiles.

Today, you can tour such areas as the Amazon River, the Swiss Alps, historic Italy and more.
