Hi Sam! I think I know the answer to my question already from reading some of your input on other threads, but I need to confirm it… I bought an Iris360 from Nctech to do virtual tours of businesses. I did my qualifying images for Google Street View and I am now a Google Trusted Photographer. I took the 360’s for my first client yesterday, which is a Toyota dealership. I will use PTGui to stitch. I need to place the tour I make on their google listing using street view. Because I was approved after August 25th of Thai year, I am denied access to the current desktop street view editor. To the extent of my knowledge I am relegated to trying to assemble the tour from the street view app on my cell phone. Aren’t Kolor Panotour Pro or Pano2vr compatible with Google Street View? What are my options?
Also, they want to show car interiors of the cars in their showroom. I could do this with hotspots with panotour or pano2vr right? But could I get that tour I build on either of those platforms onto Google Street View?

360° virtual tours created by panotour or pano2vr etc are NOT compatible with google street view (GSV), for GSV you must upload individual equirectangular panoramas (with proper metadata), and then set the hotspots in GSV through the mobile app
if you want to create a more panotour-like custom tour using panos hosted on GSV, have a look at https://walkinto.in
if you are already creating your tours with panotour etc, you can host these on most commercial web hosts by uploading via ftp etc

Hi Sam, can PANO2VR output individual equirectangular panoramas for GSV?January 20, 2017 at 7:43 am #11654

Managed to find this myself and it is possible to use pano2VR for patching and alignment and output the source.February 1, 2017 at 3:38 pm #11828

Thanks Sam for all the great info!
One quick follow-up question: Is there a difference between Google Trusted Photographer and a Google Trusted Agency for the Street View cert? If so, do the uploads automatically get applied to the google partners account you upload them from?
Any info on this would be greatly appreciated as I am gearing up to become a Google Trusted Photographer.

why has my question about the GSV movement or 3d effect between 360 panoramas been deleted? It was a valid and normal question regarding the 2 different styles or effects on GSV between tours?February 15, 2018 at 3:28 pm #15693
as it was a new question not specially about this FAQ, it was split to a new topic along with replies on that new question, here –
