Google Maps can transport a person stuck in Flint, Mich. to nearly any street in America. Go diving at the Great Barrier Reef. Explore art galleries. And now, thanks to some men in heavy jackets, a lowly cubical drone can now explore a tiny Canadian town in the Arctic circle and more than 90 ski resorts around the world.
Google started mapping ski resorts in 2010 in preparation for the Winter Olympics in Vancouver. The imagery was captured using a snowmobile and provided an unparalleled look at the sloops. California-area ski resorts were added in 2011. And just today, Google announced that there are more than 90 ski resorts mapped around the world.
With this latest data, Google Maps now has imagery from runs in Switzerland, Sweden, Italy, Canada and even more in the U.S.
