California State Parks and Google Maps are working together to bring the
state's park, trails and beaches to Street View.
The first 14 state park are live on Google Maps starting Tuesday, with more
virtual views of parks and trails on the way. The parks were mapped using Google's
Trekker backpack system, which can capture 360-panoramic views of places
inaccessible to cars.
John Laird, secretary of the California Natural Resources, speaks at
Mount Tamalpais on Tuesday in Mill Valley, Calif., where California State Parks
and Google showed off their joint effort to map the state's parks.
