Taronga Zoo has now been mapped by Google Street View bringing the usual 360-degree street level view to your screen – this one complete with animals. While I’m not sure how useful this is, it is cute and probably counts as a viable step in Google’s efforts to map every detail of the world.
The slightly amusing thing is that the Street View mapping was clearly done by a guy on a bicycle. His helmeted head features in most of the views – apart from the moments when the heat clearly got to him and you can see he took the helmet off.
They’ve also added Luna Park to Street View, although I defy anyone to get lost in the single central boulevard.
