If you would like to keep up with Dubai's perpetually evolving scene, we have great news for you.

In Google’s future plans seems to be the exploration of the above-mentioned region, since the technological giant recently mapped out Umm Al Quwain for Google Street View. To its recently completed plans was, also, the improvement of the delineation of the UAE from space in a Google Earth update.

According to a photo posted by a Reddit user, on the Dubai subreddit, there is, for sure, Google Street View cars on the Dubai’s roads. Specifically, to the following picture you can see one of the cars in question, spotted at DXB International’s Terminal 1. All this could lead to a Street View updated version in which most of the unexplored region of the Dubai will made its way through.


Maybe you have already noticed that there was no update, as Dubai Street View concerns, since 2014.

To be more exact, Street View in Umm Al Quwain was, not long ago, updated. Now, users will be able to explore the emirate’s milestones in 360 degrees. Some of these monuments are Beach Garden, the Old Town Area, the Umm Al Quwain National Museum and the famous abandoned Soviet-era Ilyushin II-76 cargo plane.

All the footage was captured by a car which was equipped with cutting edge imaging technology. More in details, it is capturing several pictures which later connects in order to create a big panoramic image.

Below you can admire some screenshots of the Umm Al Quwain’s Street View:




Last but not least, it is important to note that the upcoming update of Google Earth will show the Dubai looking greater than any other time, with the help of NASA’s Landsat 8 satellite. All users will have the opportunity to admire the planet with “greater detail, truer colour”.
