Google adds many more Street Views to its Hawaii gallery



After expanding Street Views at a handful of Oahu attractions a month ago, Google last week launched several more updated views at attractions around the state. Pictured: Halemaumau Crater at Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. Click on image to fly there in 3D.


Google has expanded its number of Hawaii locations that feature deeper Street Views, in which users can explore the photorealistic imagery at the state's top visitor attractions and beaches, as well as a handful of resorts.

Some of our favorites? You can see the dolphins, turtles and sea lions at Sea Life Park. Or explore the expansive, lush grounds of Kualoa Ranch (a favorite of fans of "Hawaii Five-0"). Get a close-up view of the Halemaumau Crater at Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. The views of Upcountry Koele on Lanai provide excellent views of Four Seasons, The Lodge at Koele and Lanai City. You can maneuver through Hawaii's No. 1 attraction: The Arizona Memorial Visitors Center. If you've got time on your hands, you can happily click through the twists and turns of Maui's famed, lengthy Road to Hana (pictured, below).



Other updated Street Views include Kaimana (Sans Souci) Beach, the Kapalua Golf Club Plantation Course, the Hilton Waikoloa Village, Makapu'u Beach, Sunset Beach, Hanalei Bay, Aloha Stadium, Keanae Peninsula, Four Seasons Resort at Hualalai, Waimea Bay, Waimea Canyon, Old Lahaina Luau and Molokai's Halawa Falls Drive.

To access these views, just click the "Street View" button on any location in 3DHawaii. Other updated Street Views expected to come online soon include the Polynesian Cultural Center and Hanauma Bay.

The 3D Travel technology platform uses the Google Earth API plug-in, so anytime Google makes updates to its Maps and Earth platforms, those changes are automatically pushed to 3D Travel's websites, including updates to satellite and 3D imagery.

About 3D Travel, Inc.

In June 2010, 3D Travel, Inc. launched 3DHawaii.com, the first of its planned 3D travel sites. The concept was so appealing that major clients such as Starwood Hotels & Resorts, Hyatt Regency Waikiki, Hilton Hotels & Resorts and the Royal Hawaiian Shopping Center signed contracts well before the site went live. In December 2010, 3DLasVegas.com was launched and included major clients such as MGM Resorts International. 3DSanFrancisco was launched in January 2012.

3D Travel, Inc. is developing many new and exciting features and partnerships to be announced soon, and stay tuned for additional 3D cities. The company has built a world-class team with offices in California and Hawaii.
