Google Street View Coming to Ottawa’s Rideau Canal Skateway [PICS]

Google Canada today announced their Google Maps teams has recorded footage of Ottawa’s Rideau Canal which will appear in Street View in the near future, helped in part by Ottawa Senators defenseman Codi Ceci: 

This morning the Google Maps Street View team skated the nearly 8 kilometre Rideau Canal Skateway, using the Trekker backpack to collect panoramic imagery of this scenic skating rink; from Dows Lake all the way to the base of Ottawa’s Parliament Hill.

Joining the Google Maps team – and no stranger to a pair of skates – was Codi Ceci, a defenseman with the NHL’s Ottawa Senators. Ceci tried on the Trekker and helped the Google Maps team capture imagery from the canal.

Here are some images of the Street View recording below along canal, a UNESCO World Heritage Site:

I can’t wait to see BeaverTails stands along the canal in Street View on my iPhone (right??).
