    Visit Bucks County has finished their month-long adventure with Google to capture off-road scenery in the county. Now, those images are accessible online.

    According to visitbuckscounty.com, team members captured 13 outdoor locations that weren’t accessible for Google Maps trucks.

    To get the images, team members had to wear a 50 pound backpack camera that took panoramic pictures, then those were sent to Google to get stitched together to be accessed from Google Maps, according to Paul Bencivengo, vice-president of Visit Bucks County.

    "Starting today, people all over the world are able to explore the beauty of Bucks County in Google Maps," said Deanna Yick, Google Maps Street View Program Manager.
