The Google Maps Grand Canyon tool allows viewers to search through the mountainous region. Zoomed in images of the Colorado River, the Meteor Crater and Bright Angel Trail make users feel as if they are actually on a hike in Arizona.

These newly released images capture the Grand Canyon's iconic monuments in addition to pictures of the adjacent roads and trails. Over 75 miles are available to look at online, making the feature quite comprehensive. The 360 degree vantage point adds to this comprehensive quality, a trait that has come to characterize most Google earth ventures. In order to produce the forum, the team used cameras with 15 lenses, enabling them to take in the breathtaking rocks and rivers.
