Google has added an amazing new set of Street View imagery - from the top of the world's tallest skyscraper.

The search giant has published its street-level 360 photographs from the top of the Burj Khalifa in Dubai.

Google said:

"This is the first time we’ve captured a skyscraper on Street View—making Google Maps even more comprehensive and useful for you. The imagery was collected over three days using the Street View Trekker and Trolley , capturing high-resolution 360-degree panoramic imagery of several indoor and outdoor locations of the building.

In addition to the breathtaking views from the world’s tallest observation deck on the 124th floor, you can also see what it feels like to hang off one of the building’s maintenance units on the 80th floor, normally used for cleaning windows!"
