Google explains German miniature world with tiny Street View vehicles




Google has added the German Miniatur Wunderland to Google Maps. To capture the huge miniature railway landscape were made small cars and trains, which are equipped with 360-degree cameras.

Google also made a miniature version of the cars that the regular Street View images are captured. However, this car is purely decorative; the actual pictures taken with voertuigjes less finished eyes. Many technical details on the restated voertuigjes Google, but on pictures show that this is a train and a car with front and rear a fisheye lens.
