Google Street View Extractor

Jamie Thompson has put together a handy little webservice that mashes up postcode geodata with the Street View Images API. In short, it allows you to get access to the unwarped Street View panorama and the underlying tiles.

We have put together a short movie to show the service in action:

As Jamie states, its handy in that it let’s you directly request a street view thumbnail with nothing more than a postcode.

The format of the request looks like this:[POSTCODE]_[WIDTH]x[HEIGHT].jpg

You can try it out here - just type in your own postcode.

Thanks go to Dr Chris Speed for picking this up, you can follow Chris on twitter.

    Awesome work...Is it consistent with Google Maps licensing?

  2. It's 100% unofficial and most likely breaks the terms of the licensing agreement. It's more of a proof of concept than anything else.
