Google will be updating its Street View pictures in Switzerland.

Starting on Monday, there’ll be an army of camera cars, all-terrain vehicles and hikers roaming the country.

The new images will include footpaths, cycling trails and ski runs.

Emphasis will be on updating urban views - Google says the smaller towns will not be left out.

As before, faces and licence plates will be obscured and you can complain if unwanted pictures are published.
