Google to map Arlington National Cemetery

Posted: Updated:
ARLINGTON, Va. -

Google is working to give you an up close and personal tour of Arlington National Cemetery without leaving the comfort of your home.

The search engine is mapping the historic cemetery by collecting millions of photos and piecing them together to recreate the feeling of walking through the burial ground.

Once the photos are online, users will be able to zoom in on gravestones close enough to read the headstones or zoom out for a panoramic view.

It's part of Google's effort to map every inch of the earth.

The images will be available to the public in May.
