How to submit your own Street View images to Google Maps

Hi everyone, in this article we will show you how to submit your own Street View images to Google Maps. Google Street View, millions of panoramic images on Google Maps that have served as a pleasant time-eater for us over the years – announced a fundamental change in its data collection process late last year. The updated Street View app for Android now allows anyone to collect a series of contiguous images of a street or road. So without further delay, let’s get started.

Google Street View is one of our favorite parts of Google Maps. You may have seen one of the Street View cars driving by taking 360 degree photos of the streets of your city, but did you know that it is possible to send your photos to Google Maps? There are two ways to do it, one of which is much easier than the next.

Submitting a spherical photo is the best way to contribute to Google Maps. They are exactly what they sound like. Photospheres are 360-degree views of an area. You can use a 360 degree camera to create one or use the specially designed camera app in the Street View app. For some phones, this is the only way to capture 360-degree photos. Phones like the Pixel have a photosphere mode in the built-in camera app.

You can create a photosphere with your Pixel phone’s camera app, such as the Google Pixel 5a. You can also create a photosphere with any of the best Android phones using the Google Street View app.

How to send your own Street View images to Google Maps

  • Open the Google Street View application. You will see small blue circles that show you where the photospheres already exist. After all, there is no point in duplicating work.
  • Walk to the place where you want to take the photosphere.
  • Touch Create.
  • Tap Spherical Photo.
  • Your camera will open and show a small field of view and a circle in the middle of the screen. Take your first photo.
  • From there, you will need to turn the camera and take photos of everything around you. To help, your camera’s viewfinder will place points where your camera should point. Place the circle in the viewfinder around those points and the camera will take the photo automatically. Then go to the next point.
  • When you’re done, the app will take you to your profile. There, you can see the photosphere preparing to load. Touch Post. By default, your phone will wait until it connects to Wi-Fi to charge.

Final Words

Maybe you already have a photosphere that you took in the past that you want to send to Google Street View, but unfortunately you’re already gone. Or you may be in a location and want to take a photosphere, and only later remember that it might be a good addition. In either case, you didn’t take the photosphere through the Street View app. You can still add it. So if you like our article, share it with others.
