The Sharjah Urban Planning Council (SUPC) has announced that Google has completed image capturing its districts and streets, which will allow users to explore Sharjah through high resolution, 360-degree panoramic imagery.

Over the last few months, the Google Street View car has been capturing the streets, districts and monuments of Sharjah, which is the second city in the Arab world to have this. Google Street View allows users to browse locations in the new districts and identify those locations. Now users will be able to identify the locations of restaurants or hotels before visiting them, or can arrange for places to meet nearby. ''It is part of SUPC's efforts to consolidate the status of Sharjah as an outstanding centre of culture in our region,'' said Shaikh Khalid Bin Sultan Al Qasimi, Chairman of SUPC.

''It will allow residents and visitors to virtually roam about the diverse, spectacular landscape and extraordinary monuments in Sharjah.''

During the Google Street View capture, Google's Street View car covered some of the most prominent areas in the emirate such as Al Khan, Al Wahda and the Corniche. The tourist sector will be one of the key beneficiaries of the service, according to SUPC.
