Google Maps footage also comes from around the whole world.
This means Google viewers can see situations they wouldn’t normally come across in their own country.
A hilarious still from New Zealand of a driver tackling herds of sheep, demonstrates this.
In the image, a man runs into the road, his arms spread in a gesture of anger.
He has parked his car on the side of the road, and the image makes it clear why.
Hundreds of sheep have blocked the concrete road, meaning no one can get past.
Together, they create a big white fluffy roadblock.
It appears the man may be trying to shoo the sheep away, so that he might cross.
However, the sheep don’t seem to be taking any notice, with one dozily wandering towards him.
He is not the only driver disturbed by the sheep herd.
Another truck is visible on the road next to him, while oncoming traffic can be seen from the opposite direction.
The New Zealand sheep image isn’t the first Google Maps image to go viral.
Last month, Google Maps Street View footage uncovered a baffling sight.
It was a group of human pigeons walking down a pavement.
On closer inspection, it was clear it was actually eight people wearing large blue pigeon masks on their heads.
The image was taken at Mitaka Station in Tokyo, Japan.
