Static Street View Image Wizard

Last week Google released a Street View Image API to quickly and easily add a static image of a Street View to a web page.

The API is very easy to use if you know the latitude and longitude of a location and you know how to work out the heading and the pitch of a Street View.

Unfortunately a lot of people don't.

I've therefore created this very simple Static Street View Wizard to help you create the URL for a static Street View image. Once you have generated the URL of a static Street View, using the wizard, you can just cut & paste it and add it to a website as you would the code for any other image.

I haven't yet added options to change the width and the height of the image. However, if you look at the generated URL you should be able to see how to manually change those settings for your image.
