Cambodia street viewSearch engine giant Google has deployed its Street View camera cars for the first time in Cambodia in an aim to map the country. It is the 51st nation to which Google’s map feature has been expanding.

Tourism is among the driving factors behind the effort, Google said, adding that it is working closely with the Ministry of Tourism of Cambodia, the APSARA Authority for the Protection and Management of Angkor and the Region of Siem Reap and the Phnom Penh Municipality to realise the programme.

Street View cars have started whizzing around the capital Phnom Penh capturing images. They will move to cover other cities, town and areas of interest over “the next few years,” among them popular tourist spots of Angkor Wat and Sihanoukville.

The mapping work can be followed on maps.google.com.kh.

The Street View project in Cambodia runs parallel to similar projects in the region, including Japan, Taiwan, Indonesia, Hong Kong, Macao, Singapore, Thailand and Bhutan.
