Kyrgyzstan became the first Central Asian country listed in the online-service of Google Street View, reports the information agency Sputnik Kyrgyzstan. Now anyone can virtually see architectural monuments of Bishkek, Osh, Jalal-Abad, Cholpon-Ata, Issyk-Kul and other regions.
The idea was realized via 3D-photos with 360 degrees view done from the height of 2.5 meters. You can study elements of architecture in details and observe the surrounding objects. Within the project, Google staff filmed the most popular touristic spots of Kyrgyzstan during the period of October-December 2015. The final processing of data and its upload to web took more than half a year.
The Google street view service was first launched in few states of the USA in 2007. Today the program consists of more than 3000 destinations around the world. For now Kyrgyzstan is the Central Asian country presented in this list.
