Arizona State Parks and Trails staff have been using the Google R7 Trekker Camera to capture in detail the trails within state parks across Arizona.
During spring of 2019, staff walked more than 200 miles carrying the Trekker, which weighs 45 pounds and includes 15 individual lenses to capture a 360-degree view of each trail.
The data will help visitors understand the difficulty and accessibility of trails, topography, and what to expect to see along the route. Google will process and upload the trail data
to the existing Earth and Maps databases free of use for the public. The project also aided in identifying trails in need of maintenance or repair in the park system.
The project does not have a specified deadline.
