The date was not reserved, most likely, works will come to the end in July. Days of making shots depend on weather conditions.

One year ago the car with cameras already went around the capital of Bashkortostan, and also along streets of two other cities of the republic — Sterlitamak and Salavat. In half a year after data processing panoramic pictures became accessible to Internet users.

Using special software, Google cuts shots from different cameras into hemispherical panoramas.
