Google's World Wonders Project
Welcome to the Morning Buzz, a catch-up on interesting happenings around the city and country and a quick guide to what (and who) to keep your eyes on. We'll be here, first thing every weekday, to get you going. Here's what's buzzing this morning:
Using Street View technology, Google developed and unveiled its World Wonders Project, a virtual guide to worldwide heritage sites and cultural landmarks of the ancient and modern worlds including the archaeological areas of Pompeii, the Hiroshima Peace Memorial, the Historic Center of Prague, and the Dorset Coast, to name a few.
With Street View, users can explore each site at street-level and learn more about each location before splurging on a plane ticket and seeing it in person (also highly recommended).
