Historic Jerusalem and Tel Aviv Featured in Google’s “World Wonders”
Google will feature the Old City of Jerusalem as well as historic sections of Tel Aviv on its new platform, the “World Wonders Project.” An addition to Google’s Street View service, the project, launched May 31, allows “travelers” to take virtual tours of historic neighborhoods and sites with a panoramic street-level view.
Users will be able to go on virtual tours of some 132 historic and heritage sites from 18 countries. The project is presented in six languages, including Hebrew.
“We believe the project can be extremely useful for students, researchers and teachers, who have been given an innovative, interactive learning tool,” a Google spokesperson said.
