How much does it cost to publish new Street View content?
The cost of a Street View project depends on the distance that we video record and publish. As part of your free consultation we will create an estimate based on the video recording distances and any requested enhancements.
Street View projects include: the drive time to the location, hardware setup, 360° video recording, virtual tour photos (if requested), post production processing, and then publishing everything to Google Maps.
Can you record the interior of my business on Street View?
Street View content is created with 360° video and precision GPS data, which is only suited for capturing outdoor locations.
Virtual Tour photo spheres are used for both indoor and outdoor panoramas. Under certain conditions, photo spheres will automatically connect to Street View lines.
We can create both Street View recordings and take Virtual Tour photo spheres during the same on-site session for your business.
An older business is showing at my location. Can you replace the existing panorama so visitors see the storefront of my business?
Yes! Google reviews the published content for recency and will insert the most recent imagery into Street View.
What is the difference between Street View Publishing and Virtual Tours on Street View?
Street View Publishing is created with 360° video content and precise GPS data, which creates in the Street View blue lines at their correct locations on Google Maps. Street View is used for outdoor panoramas.
Virtual Tours are created with multiple 360° photos and published to Street View and business listings. The photo spheres used for Virtual Tours are used for outdoor and indoor panoramas.
Virtual Tours and Street View content can be used together for maximum customer engagement on Google, your website, and across social media.
Can I ask Google to bring the Street View car back to my location?
Google does not take requests for private businesses or residential locations.
Does visitor traffic go to my Google My Business listing?
Visitor traffic on Street View is not linked to Google My Business listings. Virtual Tour photo sphere visitor traffic does go to Google My Business listings.
