Building the World Cup on Street View
Over the last few days I've been playing with the new historic Street View images on Google Maps. It is possible to use the new historic Street View images with the Google Maps API if you use the Street View image's panoID.
I've put together a demo showing how the historic Street View images can be used with the Google Maps API. This Historic Street View demo uses the HTML5 'input type="range"' slide control to allow you to manually browse through Google Maps' historic Street View images of the 2014 World Cup stadium in Fortaleza, Brazil.
Unfortunately the slide control is not supported by Internet Explorer yet. IE users will instead see an alternative link to view a slideshow of the historic images.
