Google Trekker in Fishers Parks


Now you can view images of your favorite Indiana parks and trails on Google Maps. Fishers Parks & Recreation is happy to announce that we have collected images of local trails and pathways in partnership with Google Maps.  In 2016, the Indiana Parks and Recreation Association (IPRA) partnered with Google to capture 360-degree panoramic images of 33 Indiana parks using Google Trekker technology. What this technology and opportunity provides is an enhanced way for visitors to connect with these special places in Indiana like they may never have before.

“The experience created with the Google Trekker blends technology with Fishers’ outstanding trail system and natural environment,” said Tony Elliot, Director of Fishers Parks & Recreation. “We hope it will inspire everyone to explore Fishers’ vibrant parks and trails and join us in celebrating 2018 as The Year of Parks.”

The Trekker, the latest imagery-gathering apparatus, is a wearable backpack system that allows staff to venture to locations only accessible by foot. The ability to take Street View to remote, hard-to-navigate places is a major opportunity to make the beauty and history of locations like these accessible to a global audience.

Fishers Parks & Recreation was able to capture images along many parks and trails, including Flat Fork Creek Park and Ritchey Woods Nature Preserve. The complete list of trails captured is available upon request.

Images are now available on Google Maps.
