Google Maps proved to be a useful tool for every traveler who wanted to establish the most appropriate route in order to reach a specific destination or simply to any user who would like to view the world from the infrastructure`s and transportation`s point of view. Still, the service by Google only leads you to places and objects that people have agreed to label as existent, but what if that would be modified? For instance, Google contributes to Nessie hunt, within the range of the Google Maps service, thus adding to the amount of entertainment which helps a business like that to progress and become even more likeable to the audience toward which it is projected.
This is not the first time Google brings a crazy feature like that. In the past, the American tech giant based in Mountain View, CA has integrated into its Google Maps service the capabilities of exploring famous museums of the world or even the scientific environment underneath CERN. Moreover, Google Maps paid a tribute to one of the most well known video games of the history, turning cities like New York or Saint Petersburg into Pac Man maps.
This time, Google is trying something even more fantastic. The world wide relevant search engine now provides a 360 degree view of the Loch Ness, located in Scotland, in its Maps. So if you fancy fantasy tales or just want to prove the existence of the famous Loch Ness monster, you could start your exploration via Google Maps.
April 21 was the date when Google announced the new feature of the Maps tool. The American tech company has decided to pick this specific date in order to refer to the famous Surgeon`s Photograph which was taken more than 80 years ago, in 1934. The Surgeon`s Photograph presented what many fantasy tales enthusiasts still think was Nessie, the giant monster inhabiting the Loch Ness in Scotland. The photograph started a lot of controversies and debates all around the world and remains to this day among the most interesting proofs or jokes in connection to the matter of legendary monsters.
“Like the world’s best legends, the Loch Ness Monster transcends the everyday and exists at the edges of possibility,”
was a comment which has been published on Google Maps service`s blog, by Sven Tresp, an official talking on behalf of Google Inc.
