Where Google Street View Ends

 

Inspired by the geography game GeoGuessr, Alan Taylor, who runs theatlantic.com’s wildly popular In Focus, spent some time recently in Google Maps, finding the edges of their Street View coverage.

In the article, Taylor remarks:

“I’ve always been drawn to the end of the road, to the edges of where one might be allowed to travel, whether blocked by geographic features, international borders, or simply the lack of any further road.”

 

Harnessing the power of Google Maps Street View, Taylor takes us for a virtual ride around the world to some of these very locations. I’ve gathered a few of my favorites below (including a few suggested in the comments), but be sure to check out the entire 26-picture gallery on In Focus.
