Google Maps Finishing Florida Beaches

MIAMI BEACH, Fla. (AP) -- Trekkers are completing the last mile of their Google Maps project to capture 360-degree images of Florida's 825 miles of beaches.

Local and state tourism officials will greet the trekkers on Wednesday at South Pointe Park in Miami Beach.

Visit Florida, the state's tourism and marketing arm, said the journey began in July. Two-person Visit Florida teams were trained by Google Map experts to capture the images. The teams walked about 50 miles of beach each week with a backpack that has a camera system on top. The camera has 15 lenses, angled in different directions, so it can capture a complete picture of a location. The images are then stitched together into a 360-degree panoramic photo.

Officials say the images will be viewable on Google Maps next year.
