Google and its armada of camera-rigged Steet View cars and other devices have been photographing the globe piece by piece for well over a decade now, and all that footage adds up to some pretty staggering tallies: more than 10 million miles of Street View imagery and 36 million square miles of Google Earth imagery, the company revealed for the first time in a recent CNET report.

With that many square miles surveyed, Google’s mapped out 98 percent of the parts of the world where people live with its aerial mapping service, according to CNET (My guess: That last remaining two percent covers Atlantis and Wakanda. Maybe some bits of North Dakota too). Meanwhile that 10 million miles of Street View footage amount to 400 trips around the world, Google told CNET, which just serves to underline how absolutely bonkers the amount of data Google’s working with when it comes to its other apps and services.
