Google Street View to map Israel Trail

Google Street View will photograph the length of the Israel Trail, a hiking route that runs from the nation’s northern to southern borders.

Hikers from the Society for the Protection of Nature in Israel will be enlisted to map the 660-mile trail, the Israeli business publication Globes reported.

Inaugurated 20 years ago by SPNI, the trail runs from Kibbutz Dan, near the uppermost reaches of Israel’s border with Lebanon, to Eilat on its southern tip. The trail will be the longest one photographed for Google Maps and the first that spans a whole country. — jta
