World class technology has been used in the project, said the World Wonders site officials. They further affirmed that they have used Street View technology, which will help users to navigate easily and will also help users to give a close look to all the ancient sites.
Some of the sites that are present in the project are Stonehenge, Pompeii Italy archaeological sites as well as ancient temples of Japan. The project officials were of the view that they have used camera laden tricycles, so that they can get closest view of all the sites and also high resolution images.
