The view from above – The incredible view from the 80th floor of the Burj Khalifa, captured by Google Street View.
On a level – Users can wander through the building from the lower levels up to the observation deck on the 124th floor. The tools for navigating through the building will be familiar to anyone who has used Google Street View. But on the left-hand side of the screen there is an extra widget which allows users to select the floor they wish to explore.
The height of success – Visitors captured by Google's 360 degree Street View camera look out from the world's highest observation deck.
Faces in the crowd – Street View uses face detection technology to blur people's faces, such as those of this couple on the 124th floor. Google admits that in some cases its technology has accidentally blurred the faces of horses and even statues.
From the ground up – The project also captures the Burj Khalifa's surrounding grounds, including the fountains in the building's forecourt.
Behind the scenes – The team shooting the Burj Khalifa was led by Street View program manager Pascal Malite. The entire project took about three days.
What's in a name? – In Arabic Burj means tower, and the building is named after Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, the President of the United Arab Emirates.
Open for business – The Burj Khalifa was officially opened on Jan 4, 2010 with a spectacular fireworks show. It was held 1,325 days after excavation work started, and was attended by over 6,000 guests.
Going up – Construction of the tower began in 2004. The completed building has 900 apartments, 304 hotel rooms and 2,857 parking spaces.
