Google Street View Virtual Tour Setup

Easy peasy setup after uploading 360 pictures.
Would actually help if camera’s orientation is consistent throughout the picture taking.
That means say the front lens is facing north, it is better if all pictures taken with same camera orientation.
No problem if camera is pointed different direction, just a bit more of additional re-orientation.

Steps as follow:

  1. Upload pictures
  2. Select pictures to appear in virtual tour
  3. Rearrange
  4. Reorient
  5. Connect
  6. Save

A picture is worth a thousand words :)

Swipe at the top portion of the bottom picture to view around.
Swipe at the bottom to re-orient.
Try to get the pictures spot, orientation and connection correct on first publishing.
Seems like updates are not reflected correctly.

In GSV, arrows are clearly shown.
In Google Maps, it doesn’t show as I test in my Chrome browser.
GSV setup eventually maybe gets published to Google Maps.
Chosen to re-published again in Google Maps though.
Tapping on the location even without the arrows still seemed to work though.
So, cheers!
