Burj Khalifa, Dubai
The tallest building in the world
828 meters, 160+ floors
The Burj Khalifa is special because it is the Burj Khalifa, the tallest building in
And we are here to bring to the user the possibility to see this huge, immense, wonderful building
This is the first time we're in this type of building, in an Arabic country collecting
indoor and outdoor. So I think it will be huge for the user to have this wonderful experience
of being able to navigate through Street View.
The Trekker is a new device Google created about a year ago. Its a backpack and it allows
you to go to all the places you want to go, like the mountain trails, narrow passages,
everywhere that no other device will fit. So it's just wonderful.
The capture of the whole building will take about three days.
The collect yesterday was just amazing. We went on the window cleaning baskets and we
went all over the building. We were on the 80th floor.
This is the first time I am going at this height, that Google is going, I think, at
this height with this type of device.
It was amazing to stand outside of the building and see the beautiful Dubai. You have the
sea, you have the islands and you can see everything from there.
We will also do the spire so that will be the cherry on the cake.
64 km/hour winds
This project will give the user the privilege to see more of the Burj Khalifa. You can see
everywhere, you have something to discover.
I have no words really to describe it. It's just an emotional feeling, it's really great,
Hello Burj Khalifa.
