BY VICTORIA HO1 DAY AGO
For over two years, Google has been sending people into further flung places to capture as much of the earth as it can for its Street View service.
Not everywhere can be captured by car, so intrepid trekkers are sent out on foot with a special backpack with a 360-degree camera.
In Thailand, the fruit of that labour has largely been thanks to work of one guy, Google tells Mashable.
In order to capture these places, a Thai triathlete named Panupong Luangsa-ard strapped on the backpack and trudged through rolling hills and forests.
"While collecting just the tea plantations and strawberry fields, he burned through four pairs of shoes," a Google rep said.
Panupong travelled an estimated 500,000 km using a mix of transportation methods, and walked about 500 km of it.
The entire quest to capture these sites took the team two years, with breaks on rainy days because the camera needs fair skies to get a clear shot.
The Trekker backpack weighs about 18 kg, and extends about 2 ft above the operator's shoulders. Its battery lasts around six to eight hours on a full charge.
In addition to the new sites in Thailand, Google's Street View has already been extended to exotic locations like coral reefs in Indonesia, Dubai's Burj Khalifa and the pyramids in Egypt, to name just a few.
CORRECTION: March 31, 2016, 9:46 a.m. SGT An earlier headline noted that Panupong walked the entire way. Google has reached out with an apology for the error, saying it calculated the distance walked wrongly.

You're supposed to be the genius here. You’re the man with the plan because of your insight in the Bethel House. Your questions just come to show how clueless you really are. If you can’t further your research on why Malcolm X and Muhammad Ali disassociated themselves from the Nation of Islam.
Figure it out. Read their “Bios”
Your false perception is your own undoing.
You haven’t figured out that everyone including you, have a problem with words.
the capacity or power of persons or things to be a compelling force on or produce effects on the actions, behavior, opinions, etc., of others:
He used family influence to get the contract.
the action or process of producing effects on the actions, behavior, opinions, etc., of another or others:
Her mother's influence made her stay.
a person or thing that exerts influence:
He is an influence for the good.
of extraordinary quality, as if arising from some external creative impulse
(of air or another substance) that is breathed in
Yes, I’m aware of many things you would like for it to be true to bolster your notoriety here. William Maesen's, just like any apostate driven drivel doesn’t make anything those people written anymore factual just because you're attempting to sell it as such.
As for “Fard” the scam was enlightenment, of what Christianity argument was at that time. One happened to be “hellfire”. Not that the Watchtower was playing a scam on people, rather how the Watchtower was interacting with people. Let’s not start twisting my words, your beginning to write like “O’Maly. Now your arrogance lies with court cases after the great depression.
What common cases were those, and did “any” of those have to do with civil liberties. Rutherford was making a specific argument as was the Nation of Islam. Are you suggesting these 2 were compatible?
