In July, we announced an initiative to digitally archive the areas of Northeastern Japan affected by the earthquake and tsunami from March. The 44,000 square kilometers of affected areas were captured by our Street View cameras and are now available in Google Maps.

The images can also be viewed on a special website, Bult the Memory (, where you can easily compare before and after shots of towns changed by these events.
