Google left their image-capturing gear behind and have trained some local residents to take photos themselves.
He said Google understood that the best people to show their forest were the people who lived there.
The head of FAS in Brazil, Virgilio Vianna, said the foundation decided to support the project because they believe more knowledge of the forest will help save it.
"This is the purpose of this project, this partnership with Google, to allow people to get to know a little more about the forest, the rivers, the communities without leaving their home.
"And who knows, upon this first look at the Amazon they might become interested in getting involved in some way, maybe by visiting or joining projects and other positive initiatives."
