More sheep live on the Faroe Islands than humans, so of course it made perfect sense to strap cameras to their backs and let them image away.
The idea is the brainchild of resident Durita Andreassen, who also works for Visit Faroe Islands. Andreassen knew that for years that her home, located in the North Atlantic about halfway between Norway and Iceland, had been missing from Google Maps.

So she took matters into her own hands and strapped solar-powered cameras to sheep. The images and video were uploaded to her SheepView 360° blog.
Fans took notice and began to urge Google to bring the project all the way home.
So in August, the company sent a Google Maps team, along with a Street View Trekker and 360 cameras to equip some of the islands two-legged residents.

Now, several locals are filming different parts of the 18-island archipelago by kayak, by horse -- even by wheelbarrow.
On top of that, visitors to the island can also pitch and help record images. All they need to do is get in touch with the Visit Faroe Islands office in Tórshavn or stop by the Atlantic Airways desk at the airport. Both are lending out Google cameras to anyone who fills out an application.
And of course anyone anywhere can help Google image the world using a 360 camera or applying for a Street View camera.
