Animated Street View Driving Directions
You can create your own animated Street View driving routes with Map Channels' Animated Route Maps. Just enter a starting point and a destination into Animated Route Maps and you can view the entire route animated on Google Maps Street View.
The application provides a great way to preview a route before undertaking a journey. It can also be used to provide an animated Street View tour of any location around the world that you wish to explore on Google Maps Street View.
Animated Route Maps actually allows you to view your route in three connected map views. One window shows the route animated in Street View. The other two windows show the route using Google Maps' satellite and oblique aerial views. If you only want to view the animated route in Street View then you can click on the little 'full-screen' button in the Street View window.
Map Channels can also be used to provide a static Street View, Map and Bird's Eye view of any location in the world. Dual Maps combines Street View, Google Maps and Bird's Eye aerial views into one embeddable map. It's a great way to show your website users a location using three different map views of the same place.
Both Animated Route Maps and Dual Maps are free to use and can be embedded into your own website or blog by copying and posting the provided iframe code.
