Happy Nunavut Day! Iqaluit comes to Google Street View

From Google's official blog:

Nunavut, in the Inuktitut language, means "our land". When Google Maps teamed up with the nonprofit Nunavut Tunngavik Inc to improve the maps of Canada's Arctic, our aim was to help the people of Canada's most northern territory build a map that accurately reflects the land they know so well.

Today, as we celebrate Nunavut Day, we're thrilled to share these new maps and Street View imagery from the snowy streets, snowmobile trails and dog sled runs of Nunavut's capital, Iqaluit.
