The new program, which permits artworks to be viewed at incredibly high levels of detail, adapts the company's 'street view' technology to indoor environments, permitting the virtual touring of seventeen renowned art museums. visitors can also create, comment on, and share their own virtual art collections compiled from the project's works.
