The Google Street View team visited College of the Canyons on Friday, Oct. 21, as part of Google’s ongoing efforts to map the world.

Using a combination of both auto- and bike-mounted 360-degree cameras, the team scoured the interiors of both the Valencia and Canyon Country campuses, mapping walkways, sidewalks, parking lots and even Cougar Stadium. The images will be added to the Google maps in the coming weeks.

“Looking at College of the Canyons now on Google maps, you simply see either a satellite or graphic representation of the campus,” said Bruce Battle, College of the Canyons managing director of district communications and marketing. “Now users will be able to virtually tour either campus.”

Google Street View enables a Google map user to place an icon onto a location, and then navigate through the images of that exact location using on-screen directional guides.

“This will be a great service for students and visitors alike, who will be able to access these maps from, say, a smartphone while they’re standing in the Honor Grove,” said Battle. “Instead of using a paper map to try and find their way to a classroom, they’ll be able to access a completely visual map of exactly where they are, and where they need to go.”
