As of Wednesday, anyone the world over can cruise along the streets of Cambridge Bay, a community of approximately 1600 people in Canada’s eastern Arctic territory of Nunavut.

Google’s Street View map of the community is now online.

In August, a Google crew captured every angle of the town’s gravel roadways. They used a special tricycle equipped with 360-degree cameras.

Cambridge Bay was the first community in Nunavut to get Street View. A company spokesperson said they will head to another community in Nunavut next year, but would not say which one.
