Street View/CityBlock is a research project created for the purpose of imaging public streets and areas. The vehicle(s) are equipped with commercial grade digital still and video cameras and an array of eye-safe lasers. These sensors rapidly image the area surrounding the vehicle and store those images on computers inside the vehicle. The imagery the vehicle produces is equivalent to a series of high-resolution pictures. The vehicle is built to comply with road-safe laws and does not pose any special risk to others on the road.
Associates are given the task of driving public streets and areas, specifically targeting commercial districts and historical sites. They're asked to thoroughly map a given area including all public streets, highways, and off and on ramps. At times this will require specific areas to be driven multiple times due to poor weather and/or lighting conditions. Associates must enjoy driving and be available for a minimum of 1-3 months.
