Burj Khalifa, the world's tallest tower, standing at 828 meters in height, made a groundbreaking announcement on 24th June, 2013: Emaar and Google unveiled Street View for the first time in the Arab world, an application through Google Maps and Google Earth that allows users to explore panoramic images of streets.
First launched in the United States, Street View very quickly expanded to other regions and cities across the world and now covers 50 countries and 3,000 cities including parts of the Arctic and Antarctica.
The Burj Khalifa Street View allows the global audience to witness this man-made marvel from the comfort of their own home. It is the first time that Google has used this technology on a skyscraper and provides its users with an experience like never before. The project was filmed over a duration of three days using their latest technology, the Street View Trekker to film the exterior, and the Trolley for indoor images.
With the Burj Khalifa tour, the audience can also see The Dubai Fountain, Waterfront Promenade and the Window Basket 80th Floor exterior.
