Google's street view feature unveiled the addition of more than 200 panoramic views of destinations across 6 islands.

HONOLULU -

Honolulu Mayor Peter Carlisle joined an official from Google to announce Tuesday the new Street View imagery of Hawaii's parks, beaches and attractions.

The enhancement to this popular feature of Google Maps enables people from around the world to plan their vacation.  This is accomplished by taking virtual tours of popular destinations in Honolulu and throughout Hawaii, such as the Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve and other public parks and beaches.

The first Street View imagery of Hawaii launched in November 2009, and the latest updates expand that capability into parks, beaches, the Honolulu Zoo and other destinations here and in other cities.

Since some of the most interesting and fun places aren't accessible to the Street View car, Google engineers developed the Street View tricycle.  Today’s imagery is made available by these three-wheel pedicab "trikes" that can maneuver along paths and trails.

"This is a great way for residents and visitors to become familiar with Honolulu’s beautiful parks, zoo, aquarium and other destinations before visiting," Carlisle said during a news conference at Hanauma Bay.

The Street View feature in Google Maps already helps Internet users explore 360-degree street-level imagery from around the world by providing panoramas made available by Street View cars that take photographs as they drive down public streets.  Once the photographs have been taken, they go through computer processing to make them ready for use on Google Maps.

Among the many locations now available through Google Maps are Kapiolani Park, Foster Botanical Garden, Honolulu Zoo, Waikiki Aquarium, Ala Moana Regional Park, Central Oahu Regional Park, and more than 150 other parks.

The feature also includes many popular resorts, golf courses, Kualoa Ranch and other destinations across the state.

This expands upon Google's previous road coverage on six of Hawaii's major islands, including Oahu, Big Island, Maui, Kauai, Molokai, and Lanai.
