    This seems pretty awesome, but again, will it make the world 'smaller'?
    I personally love Google streetview and sometimes revisit places or check out places I am planning to travel to.
    It might even help with route finding as long as peeps don't abandon maps and GPS when out walking.

    Well give it, what, twenty years and you'll be able to go there in a decent VR set up

    (Might be more like ten actually.).

    the thing is, its already a smaller place - we climbed scafell pike the other weekend, and took the corridor route - as it was our first trip up scafell pike, I did a quick review on google and found loads of blogs, trip reports, pictures and even videos of the route.

    Still used my map and compass when I got there like especially when checking the start of the corridor route.

    reading about or watchingroutes is great, but getting out on the hillitself will always be better
