Google has captured images of the unique Galapagos Islands to use on its online mapping site.
The team hauled 360-degree cameras along trails, up hills and even into a live volcano to capture images of the diverse environment which inspired Charles Darwin in his theory of evolution.
Panoramic pictures of the diverse marine environment were also taken which will allow users to take "virtual dives" into the ecosystem.
The 10-day trip saw team members walk past the islands' famous giant tortoises, blue-footed boobies and into a crater of the active volcano, the Sierra Negra.
Google hope the images will advance scientific understanding in order to protect the Galapagos from invasive species, climate change and other human impacts.
The images will be added to its free online mapping service later this year.

A man told the local Skagit Valley Herald newspaper he felt a vibration and looked in his rear view mirror to see that the part of bridge he had just crossed was no longer behind him. "I thought something was wrong with my car at first," he said.
