FEB 2022 UPDATE:
We’ve recently expanded our efforts and now provide 360° Virtual Reality Tours of local areas to include Todos Santos, Pescadero, Cerritos, Cabo San Lucas, and San Jose del Cabo, including all points between. Visit our YouTube Channel to view the latest tours. We hope you’ll like and subscribe as we are bringing on much more content.
Because we want to help teach you a bit more about this free service we’ll break it down for you to help better understand the importance of what we do.
There is more to Google Maps than you think. Google Maps is a web mapping platform and consumer application offered by Google. It offers satellite imagery, aerial photography, street maps, 360° interactive panoramic views of streets, real-time traffic conditions, and route planning for traveling by foot, car, air, and public transportation.
Google Street View Photography
Google Street View is a technology featured in Google Maps and Google Earth that provides street-level interactive 360° panoramas. You can even interact with a pair of VR goggles and literally put yourself in the driver’s seat.
We Contribute to Google Maps
As a Google Contributor, we add new roads, mark roads that are no longer passable, review and rate places, add photos and videos, check facts, answer questions about places, add missing businesses and places, and much more.
Google simply doesn’t have the resources to keep up with fast-developing areas. Many rural and outlying areas have not been mapped. When Google does update roads they focus on primary popular roads and areas of interest. To the best of my knowledge, we are the only ones providing this service.
Since July 2020, we have mapped over 500 miles of roads, uploaded over 300,000 photospheres, photographed over 760 stores all of which have resulted in more than 7 million views. And our reviews alone have had over 200,000 views.
First responders are first on the scene they include paramedics, police officers, firefighters, and rescuers. They rely on accurate mapping data to find places. We’ve added new roads and closed impassable roads.
Businesses are Benefiting
Cabo San Lucas, Todos Santos, San José del Cabo, and all businesses in between are heavily dependent on tourism. As a top traveling destination you want your businesses in the traveler’s sights. Having current and accurate mapping data is the key for businesses to benefit from this free passive marketing. This builds trust with customers and helps travelers with their research and helps customers make informed decisions.
We’ve recently retired and are now living full-time here in Baja. The community service we provide is unpaid unsponsored work performed for the benefit and betterment of our community. The time, expertise, and equipment come at a price. If you feel we have attributed value to your business or would like to support our efforts with a small donation see below.
If you see us driving around shooting 360° panoramas be sure to wave. Faces and license plates blurred.
