Driving Directions with Street View

Animated Route Maps

If you have a 'Where Are We' page on your website you should consider adding an animated route map from Map Channels. This handy application lets you create an animated directions map using Street View and Bing's Bird's Eye View.

To create an embedable map you just need to enter a starting point and a destination. Map Channels Animated Route Map will then create the code for you to add to your website. When your users press play they can follow the route in Street View and Google Maps.

The application comes with a number of customisation settings so you can change the width and height of your map. You can also change the speed settings for the animation and choose which map types you wish to display.
