The Brandywine Creek runs directly through downtown Wilmington. DE and has some great hiking/biking trials on either side of the river. The rock walls of Alapocas are another popular highlight of this area. We strapped on the 360 Camera and hopped on a bike to blue line the 3.5 section of trail hat had been overlooked by the Google Street View cameras.
Sanibel Seashell Industries is one of the oldest purveyors of seashells and shell related merchandise on Sanibel Island. Their retail store is extended with an online presence at seashells.com and they needed to update Google Maps with immersive 360 images of the retail shopping experience. After a day of staging panoramic photos in both of their buildings we submitted them to Google and repositioned each of the interior photos accurately. Here are the results of that effort (indicated by blue dots on the map):
Here is a live look at a few of the images:
We created a “Blue Line” on Street View for this iconic Sanibel location. All images were recorded using the Insta360 Pro on our custom backpack a.k.a “The Trekker”.
Here is what things looked like before our visit (park is in green):

One of Sanibel Islands best kept secrets is a hiking trail that parallels Periwinkle Way just as you enter the island from the bridge and causeway. It had never been mapped in Google Street View so we put on our Trekker backpack and set out to show the world what the Pond Apple Park trail is all about.
Here is the approximate location of the trail in red:
And here is the trail with our contributions:

In August 2018 we traveled to the Wilmington, Delaware waterfront with a goal of blue lining the DuPont Environmental Education Center hiking trail and boardwalk. Here is what Google Maps displayed before our visit:
After hiking all the trails and submitting our images the map was updated and now looks like this:
Success! You can traverse the entire trail here:
