Map of the Week: Instant Street View

Map of the Week: Instant Google Street View
Why we like it: Instant Google Street View starts clean, with a simple search box.


As Google, we find this approach very appealing.

As you type, it rapidly updates the page with images from Google Street View...

...until you get where you want to see.


Instant Street View uses the Google Places Library Autocomplete Service to quickly get the location you’re looking for. It uses the Street View Service to display the Street View panoramas. And when you’ve found what you want to look at, you share it via your favorite social media or get a quick map view:




Most of all, we love that it’s fast. So get out there and share some great images from Instant Street View.
