Google Street View Trekker Loan Program

Thanks for your interest in helping to capture panoramic images from all types of locations using our Street View Trekker! Our loan program enables third parties to borrow our Trekker equipment and take it to amazing places around the world that they know, love and want to share via Google Maps.

If you represent an organization such as a tourism board, non-profit, government agency, university or research group that would like to take photos with the Trekker for future inclusion on Google Maps, please fill out this form. Tell us more about your proposed locations and upcoming trips, and we’ll get back to you if/when there’s an opportunity for us to partner with you on a Trekker collection. Thanks!


Important Notes:

- This program is currently available for a limited set of countries below. We're working to expand eligibility to additional countries in the future, and appreciate your patience in the meantime.

- Unfortunately, we aren't able to reply to every organization that expresses interest, but we appreciate your time and will reach out to those we can.

Describe your interest in the Google Street View Trekker and your proposed trek.
Provide some detail about your proposed project, the locations you want to share with the world via Street View, and why you think it’d be useful to have imagery of those sites on Google Maps. Tell us what makes the places you're proposing amazing, describe the type of imagery and any highlights you expect to capture, and let us know if your trip is already planned (if so, when?).
Your answer
Can you help obtain the necessary permissions to capture imagery at this location?
Even for public parks we often need to get written permission, legal releases and/or filming permits from the organization that manages the site.
Do you or your organization want to personally help with the collection effort?
What are the goals you're hoping this imagery collection/publication will achieve, and how do you plan to evaluate the success of this project?
For example, if you’re trying to improve tourism, do you intend to track for increased foot traffic to your location following the imagery release? If you’re interested in increasing online traffic to your webpages with the embedded imagery, are you planning to implement tracking tools such as Google Analytics to measure success? What other goals do you have for this imagery – positive press, increased number of donations, etc?
Your answer
Please share your organization's proposed PR and Marketing strategy for this project.
For example, are you interested in promoting our partnership and the imagery at the collection and/or launch of the imagery? Might you build a custom viewing experience via our Google Maps and Street View APIs? Would you issue a press release or corporate blog post, host a local event with key policymakers, pitch the story of our partnership to relevant audiences, etc?
Your answer
Are you planning to promote, share and repurpose the Street View imagery you collect on your website, mobile app, and in other pieces of marketing material via our Google Maps or Street View APIs?
Would you be seeking funding support, sponsorship, or some other form of support from Google to conduct this project
This would be anything beyond the gear required for the Trekker to function
