Angkor's thousand-year-old temples are now Trekk-able on Google Street View

Over 100 amazing new historical sites now viewable up close and personal in Google Maps

Google is expanding its Street View data again, this time adding more in-depth Trekker data (those are the sweet imaging backpacks) for Angkor's thousand-year-old temples in Cambodia. Clearly a very historic place that couldn't be mapped by traditional Street View equipment or even high-resolution satellites, this type of imagery really shows off the power of the Trekker program.

The new data can be seen through more than 100 iconic historic sites in the area such as the Bayon Temple, with over 90,000 new panoramic image views available for locals and potential tourists alike to enjoy.
