Entry Description

There’s nothing like exploring a city on foot–it’s a great way to take in the sights and sounds of a new place. But it can be hard to know exactly which direction to go. Live View Walking Navigation places arrows and directions in the real world to guide you along your way. By leveraging decades of map data and Street View with modern smartphone cameras and image recognition, we’ve been able to make answering the question “Where am I?” and “Which way do I go first?” as easy as looking through your camera.
