JOBS WHITE PEOPLE WON'T DO:

Faroe Islands fit cameras to sheep to create Google Street View (Will Coldwell, 12 July 2016, The Guardian)

Living across 18 tiny sub-polar islands in the north Atlantic, Faroe islanders are used to working in difficult conditions. So tired of waiting for Google Street View to come and map the roads, causeways and bridges of the archipelago, a team has set up its own mapping project - Sheep View 360.

With the help of a local shepherd and a specially built harness built by a fellow islander, Durita Dahl Andreassen of Visit Faroe Islands has fitted five of the island's sheep with a 360-degree camera.
