A Google employee walks thru Arlington National Cemetery with the Street View capture device known as the Trekker,  a wearable backpack system that has 15 cameras.  Each lens in the Trekker backpack points in a different direction, so that when combined, all of the images can be stitched into 360-degree panoramic views.  Once Google is done mapping, which is planned for the cemetery's 2014 150th anniversary, armchair travelers can visit the iconic graveyard online,  and explore both panoramic and detailed views of the hollowed grounds.
