Take Google Maps Streetview to the Next Level!

Posted by amustard on September 4, 2015



Google Map’s Streetview function is an obvious choice to get a first-hand look at the roadways and landscapes of your preferre­­d destination. But when it comes to plotting out your specific journey (particularly a long one), Streetview can be labour intensive, requiring many clicks and a good memory.

Fortunately, an app developer has built a Google Maps Streetview Player – a program designed to create a video of your specified route using the particular Google Streetview images that are available. It’s as easy as typing in your starting point and the destination, and a video of your journey is created The video can also be sped up or slowed down, so whether you want to take a leisurely sight-see or a speedy cruise, Streetview Player can get you there at the pace you want. 

Here is an example showing the drive from our Woodstock Office to our Kitchener office!

You can now visualize your road trips in advance allowing you to plan pit stops, determine the best tourist locations and know where to find the best scenic views, before you even get into your car. How handy is that?

This program can be found on the web at http://www.brianfolts.com/driver/ and the app can be found on Google Play.­­
