Google Maps Street View was developed in 2007, mostly as a way of helping people with directions. The app allows users to zoom in from a bird-eye-view traditional map right down to street level to get an up-close look at the surroundings.
However, while most holidaymakers don’t case much of a scene, it seems two sunbathers caused quite a stir.
Positioned towards the back of the beach a couple can be seen laying in front of a rope fence, separating the sand from the grasslands behind.
Upon this fence, items of clothes can be seen hanging.
A blue shirt, strewn across the rope appears to flap in the breeze, meanwhile, a tan coloured jacket can be seen hanging from the top of a wooden fence post.
The couple, however, are both completely free from all clothing.
It seems the duo were set on side-stepping any tan lines by basking completely nude in the sun.
Therefore the tech giant has taken steps to try and omit any risqué scenes from its images.
As a result, the sunbathing couple has had their entire bodies covered by a blur.
All that can be seen are their extremities, with the main bulk of their bodies hidden.
It adds: “Google takes a number of steps to protect the privacy of individuals when Street View imagery is published to Google Maps.
“We have developed cutting-edge face and license plate blurring technology that is designed to blur identifiable faces and license plates within Google-contributed imagery in Street View.”
