A Street View Javascript Library

ToGo Software Street View Library

ToGo Software has produced a simple Javascript library for Google Maps Street View. The library is very easy to use, and there is no need for a Google Maps API key.

To use the library you just need to include stview.js within your html. You can then place a Street View on your website by calling $stview, e.g.

As you can see from the example above, the height and width of the Street View is customisable. To add a Street View for a particular location you can use the latitude and longitude (as in the example above) or you can use a postal address.

You can of course embed a Street View in a web page simply by going to Google Maps and clicking on the 'Link' option and embedding the given code. However, if you plan to show a number of Street Views on one page or across a website then this Street View Javascript library could be very useful.

Definitely, document.getElementsByTagName('*') isn't the most efficient way to run JavaScript, but the library itself is targeting for the users without much programming background (the easiest way to use).

BTW, There is another tool you may be interested Google Street Virtual Tour JavaScript Library.
