Monster hunters get an online map
Nessie hunters can now use Google Street View to hunt for the elusive creature.
When searching in the Loch Ness area, the usual yellow Google Pegman will change to a Nessie peg-monster, giving users the power to zoom in to different areas of the loch.
In a bid to boost tourism, Loch Ness expert Adrian Shine spent a number of days with the Google Street View and Catlin Seaview Survey teams as they performed an operation to photograph above and below the waters. The launch date coincides with the most famous photo of the Loch Ness Monster, the Surgeon's Photograph.
