Do cats need maps? Maybe not, but the Hiroshima perfecture thought tourists might want to see their city from a different purrspective, and created what it calls the world’s first “cat’s eye view map,” which uses 360-degree cameras similar to those used for Google Street View. According to the Wall Street Journal, the map covers a shopping arcade and surrounding areas. It includes most features seen on other interactive online maps, such as camera angle functions and details about local shops. You can view the map here.
