Once UNA’s street view option is online, viewers can zoom in and out and up and down as they “walk” through campus.
The project called iQ Street View was developed by Belgium based communications agency Happiness Brussels.
The Google crew was invited to campus because the walking nature of UNA did not readily lend itself to Street View exploration.
Google is doing everything it can to photograph every last corner of the world for its Street View feature.
Google cars are making their way through the world capturing 360 degree views of streets.
We came up with the idea after seeing that lots of our own streets werent on Street View, says Happiness Brussels concept provider Patrick Glorieux.
But there are still some places its mapping fleet can’t go, and you can fill in those holes yourself with your very own Street View camera kit.
The agency got the project go ahead from Google and contacted three Street View camera suppliers in Germany, Holland and Spain.

The tiny car will keep driving until the end of the year, Glorieux tells Mashable.
All images and data will be captured on servers until [the agency] feels no new streets are being added on the website.
Though the project is not sponsored or officially affiliated with the company, the Google Creative Sandbox has noted the projects creativity.
Thats also why we took some time to find the right Street View camera crew, so that the images are Google quality.
Residents of Belgium should continue to tag streets they find missing from Google Street Views, Glorieux says: We really have no idea how much there will be at the end.
But you can embed your own views onto your website with the same navigation functionality that Google Maps offers, which makes this setup an ideal tool for real estate agents who want to give clients a virtual tour of a home, or museums who want to open their collection to the entire world.
