According to some statistics, over 250 million people have visited Eiffel Tower in Paris and the monument was world’s highest monument for more than 40 years.
On expressing the joy of covering the spectacular vision and the detailed architectural capabilities of Eiffel Tower in Google Street View, Mark Yoshitake, Head of Product & User Experience, Google Cultural Institute said;
“It’s been awe-inspiring to get to see the spectacular vision and the detailed architectural capabilities exemplified by the plans more than 100 years ago. It required tremendous knowledge of special planning and physics to ensure that 18,000 separately made pieces would come together as one.”
Google’s Street View team followed the footsteps of 7 million annual visitors and ascended multiple floors of the Tower. The team has captured several 360 degree panoramic pictures of the Tower and also added 50 archival images, plans, engravings and photos which cites the history Eiffel Tower’s development along with the social impact in late 19th century.
