Google has used its customized Street View Trekker and Trolley equipment to map its first skyscraper — the Burj Khalifa in Dubai. Google sent its teams up the world's tallest manmade structure to create a high-resolution 360-degree indoor and outdoor map which guides you through other record-breaking facilities the building offers — including the world's highest occupied floor, the fastest-moving elevators (which reach speeds of 22 mph), and the highest swimming pool in the world. One Google team member even stepped outside of the building to capture the view from one of the Burj Khalifa's maintenance units on the 80th floor. The resulting maps offer stunning panoramic views across Dubai and allow you to experience the luxurious skyscraper inside and out from the comfort of your computer or mobile device.
