Adding a Streetview to a stop

Updated 2 years ago by Antoine Gouritin

In order to help users make the most of your tour, especially in the GuidiGO web app, you could add a Google Street View map to each stop,  like in this example. 

Follow these steps to proceed:

  1. Head to the 2. Stops tab.
  2. Select a stop.
  3. Click the Add a view or a model button and select Standard mode.
  4. The default view that Street View associates with the address of your stop on Google Maps will appear.
  5. You will then have two options.

Option 1: The default view suits you

  1. Adjust the angle of the view and the zoom level to get a view exactly as it will appear to the user.
  2. Click Save.

You can go back to default view at any time, by simply clicking Reset.

Option 2: The default view does not suit you

  1. Verify and, if necessary, correct the address of your stop.
  2. If the address is correct and you wish to change the view nonetheless, click Change View.
  3. Paste the complete Street View URL that you wish to use as a replacement in the popup field (see the next paragraph).
  4. Click Next and then Save.

How to find a Street View URL

  1. Open Google Maps in a new tab. 
  2. Enter the name of the landmark and/or the desired address.
  3. Click Pegman in the bottom right corner of the screen and move it to the desired location on the map.
  4. Navigate the map, rotate the view and use +/- buttons until you set the one you want.
  5. Copy the complete URL in your browser’s address bar.

Add your own 360° view

If Google Street View does not cover your stop, you could create and add a 360° view yourself.  

  1. Select Image upload in the Street View popup of the stop.
  2. Upload an equirectangular image in the 2:1 format.
  3. Adjust the angle of the view and the zoom level.
  4. Click Save.
