This island is using sheep to map the landscape because Google won’t give them Street View

Google Street View has yet to map the Faroe Islands, an 18-island archipelago in the north Atlantic, part of the Kingdom of Denmark. To promote tourism and to convince Google to map its picturesque streets, the tourism organization Visit Faroe Islands launched Sheep View 360, an unconventional method for documenting its landscape.

Tired of waiting for Google’s fancy car to come map the roads on your remote island? Why not do it yourself? With sheep? 

According to Smithsonian, that’s the approach taken by Durita Dahl Andreassen (pictured above) who works for the tourism bureau of Denmark’s Faroe Islands. 

When Andreassen couldn’t find any images of the rugged, chilly island on Google street view, she decided to upload her own, using sheep, which roam freely on the island. She describes the idea in a video for the project, entitled Sheep View 360:

In the Faroe Islands there are twice as many sheep as people. And the Faroe Islands originally even means ‘the sheep islands.’ It is one of the only places on earth where they walk free in nature and they get all around the islands. I have put a 360 camera on the back of a sheep. It’s like street view, but with sheep.

Google seems to be OK with the idea. In fact, they actually encourage people to upload their own street view pictures. So, why not take an 80-second break and watch this video of a sheep making its way through the island’s beautiful landscape?

Google maps, Waze and shit should have an “I’m black” option. Seriously. Like I’m sure you’re doing a great job saving me 10 mins finding me the fastest route around traffic here or there. But why in God’s name would you take my black ass through country ass roads and redneck ass towns in West Virginia and rural Virginia for an a HOUR when there is a whole ass interstate available????

Ya’ll literally putting my life in danger. TUFIAKWA, gerrroooouuuutt!!

The fact that google maps took off Palestine of their maps literally sickens me. Palestine is still a place. 137 countries still recognize that Palestine is a state but because the US are incompetent assholes who are zionists, they will stop at nothing to make sure Palestine is no longer a thing. If you look it up all you will see is a dotted line around Palestine but will not actually say Palestine. Palestine has been a place way before the time of Jesus and Moses.
