Google Maps Street View: Creepy

Google Maps Street View was developed in 2007 as a way to help users get an on-the-ground look at destinations around the world. Using 3D cameras, often attached to Google’s specialist cars or held by pedestrians, the programme is able to photograph roads and streets around the world.

These are then stitched together in post-production to create a virtual world, which can be clicked around from the comfort of the user’s own home.

Though it is a great way of gaining an insight into foreign lands, the application also has some unexpected uses.

Users are increasingly noticing weird and wonderful moments taking place all across the globe.

One scene in Chile, however, has left users feeling particularly spooked.

The moment was spotted by a user called Google Street View Guy who shared it in forum Google Street View World.

The user described the scene, writing: “Google Street View captures a dumpster full of dead bodies in Chile!”

Indeed, around six human-like figures can be seen among the typical rubbish.

One is face down in front of the bins, another stuffed upside down into a bin, its legs flailing in the air.

Perhaps this scene has taken place outside of a fashion house or a retailer which no longer has a use for them.

The image was also shared by Mashable, which blames the material used for the mannequins for the eerie appearance.

“This image of a dumpster full of discarded mannequins was captured in Chile,” the image caption reads.

“We’re thinking they look an awful lot like mummified corpses.”
