As Danny Wu from Taiwan searches for familiar haunts on Google Street View, she spots something wholly unexpected – and it makes her want to cry. In November 2018, Wu shared her surprising experience with the world. And it touched so many people that it made international news…

Launched in 2007, Google Street View allows users to explore remote locations at “street level” using images gathered by roving Google cars. The photographs are digitally blended into a seamless whole. The result is an immersive panorama that can be explored virtually – as if walking the streets – through any web browser.
