"Every moment ever photographed was a Kodak moment.

This is the Google Street View “car” for Iqaluit, Nunavut, Canada
It’s called the Trekker. They use it to map places where cars can’t reach… Iqaluit only receives a few ships every summer capable of off-loading vehicles. And that space is extremely expensive and very valuable to the community. So realistically, Google probably couldn’t get a Streetview Car out there.
