Now, Create Your Own Street View On Google Maps Using Your Android Phone or A DSLR Camera...



Want to show your friends from the other town how it feels like to take a walk across your neighbourhood? Google will now let you build your own Street View experiences using Google’s Photo Sphere technology for Android phones and DSLR cameras.
In a postannouncing the feature, Evan Rapoport, Product Manager, Google Maps & Photo Sphere wrote in the Google Latlong blog that using a new feature in Maps’ View community, you will be able to connect your photo spheres to create 360-degree virtual tours and share them on Google Maps. You can create photo spheres using your Android phone or a DSLR and share them.
You will then need to select photo spheres from your profile and use Google’s new tool to connect them together and publish to Google Maps. Users will be able to navigate between them just like they can on Street View. Check out an example of this map made by Rapaport:

When the tool is used to make a custom Street View experience, you can make use of pretty much all markers you’ve been used to seeing in regular Street View images. The drag handles, point gestures and even clicking on the farthest point of a picture are all still available for your private experience just like they are on Street View. “We are excited to see the different types of Street View experiences that everyone will contribute. For example, this feature can now enable environmental non-profits to document and promote the beautiful places they strive to protect. It also opens up a new tool for photographers to showcase diversity in a specific location -- by times of day, weather conditions or cultural events -- in a way that Street View currently doesn’t cover,” Rapoport writes.
If you have a business, this tool will come very handy. It will allow to embed your interactive maps onto your websites or even build apps with it using the Google Maps API.

Amalkanti (Nirendranath Chakrabarti) Amalkanti is a friend of mine, we were together at school. He often came late to class and never knew his lessons. When asked to conjugate a verb, he looked out of the window in such puzzlement that we all felt sorry for him. Some of us wanted to be teachers, some doctors, some lawyers. Amalkanti didn't want to be any of these. He wanted to be sunlight — the timid sunlight of late afternoon, when it stops raining and the crows call again, the sunlight that clings like a s mile to the leaves of the jaam and the jaamrul. Some of us have become teachers, some doctors, some lawyers. Amalkanti couldn't become sunlight. He works in a poorly lit room for a printer.
