The map uses a spyglass to zoom in for Street View, with a rounded telescopic frame and old-school filter. To access, visit Google Maps and click on the "Treasure" picture icon in the right-hand corner. Instructions for the "beta technology" warn, "Your system may not be able to display at higher resolutions than paper print."
Some locations, like Treasure Island in the San Francisco Bay and San Jose State University, have mini maps and a letter X marking the spot. There are other icons scattered around with map coordinates, including Bermuda, New York, and Boston. Happy hunting!
