Old World Wisconsin opened its gates to a team from Google today to collect street-view images for use in Google Maps.The Internet search firm will film the museum grounds at street level using a special tricycle with a camera mounted on top to access areas not open to vehicles. When complete, images of the museum's roads and farmsteads will allow Google Maps users to take a virtual walk through the museum's grounds.
Old World Wisconsin's director Dan Freas enthusiastically signed on for the mapping, as another way for 21st-century visitors to access information about this museum dedicated to rural life at the turn of the last century.
