UPDATE: Google Maps Car Still in Russell

Google Maps car in RussellIf you've seen a small white car with a blue globe on top of its roof driving around Russell this week and are wondering what it is, we've got an explanation for you.

The car belongs to Internet company Google and its purpose is to photo map the city of Russell using a high tech, high resolution 360 degree camera. The pictures taken will be used on Google's "Street View" feature in its Maps application. 

Russell had been previously mapped by the Internet giant a few years ago, but now the company is simply updating its pictures.
